June 8Annual Meeting and Presentation Remembering the Framingham and Lowell Railroad
Join us for the Sudbury Historical Society's Annual Meeting, and then a presentation by Steve Greene once Board business has concluded.
Our Annual Meeting will consist of a simple vote for the slate of officers for next year and a brief discussion about our current and future Society plans.
Steve Greene will trace the history of the north-south railroad line that ran from Lowell to Framingham from its beginning in 1871 to the end of the last train in 2000. Many newly discovered photos give us an idea of how the railroad changed life for Sudbury citizens. A glimpse of features that will be visible from the completed Bruce Freeman Rail Trail will be included.
