Arlington Historical Society President Speaks About "The Railroad Before the Bikepath"

On Tuesday, June 6th, Society President Dr. Stuart Brorson will
deliver a talk entitled "Before the Bike Path: The Lexington and West
Cambridge Railroad". His illustrated talk will show photographs and
documents outlining the history of the railroad from its incorporation
in 1845 until its demise at the end of the 1970s. Dr. Brorson will
present the colorful personalities involved in the railroad's early
days along with photos of steam engines and rolling stock, and maps
showing the railroad's right-of-way through the decades. This talk is
meant to be enjoyed by everybody -- from causal bike riders to
enthusiastic railroad buffs to Arlingtonians interested in the history
of their town.
