WMGS Training Session: Railroads Around Amherst and Northampton, MA

Thursday, October 21 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ever wonder how our ancestors traveled in the 19th and 20th centuries? What railroad or trolleys were available in our area?  Or perhaps your ancestor lived near enough to railroad tracks that they heard the whistle or rattle as they rumbled by?
Join us for a fascinating tale of the “Railroads Around Amherst and Northampton, MA” presented by WMGS member Philip E. Johnson, a railroad historian and author. Phil has put together a presentation about railroad and trolley lines that some of our
Hampshire County ancestors may have used.
