The Bloomingdale Station was located on the Delaware and Hudson Railway line on its route through the Bloomingdale Bog.  After the line was abandoned by the railway, the station was purchased by the Bloomingdale Pilgrim Holiness Church for $500. The building was cut in half, with each section being moved separately to the new site.

Trains are now running regularly on the Chateaugay railroad extension to Saranac Lake from Plattsburgh. The new depot at Bloomingdale is so far completed as to receive and accommodate any number of pasaengers and freight. The railroad will be a great benefit to the village.
