Boston & Maine Railroad Water Tower Dedication & Wakefield Heritage Commission’s 25th Anniversary Celebration
The Wakefield Heritage Commission and Town of Wakefield cordially invite you to attend a very special event—the dedication ceremony of the last authentic Boston & Maine Railroad Water Tower—relocated from Lake Shore Park in Gilford and restored at Union Station last year—and the Commission’s 25th anniversary and season opener on June 23.
Over the past 25 years, we’ve worked to keep our local history alive. With Town of Wakefield, private donor and volunteer elbow grease and financial support, our restorations include Union Station and the Freight House—the heart and soul of the Heritage Park Railroad Museum– the Spinney Meeting House, the Heritage Centre at Wakefield Corner/Lovell Union Grange Hall, and Newichawannock Canal—designated the town’s second National Historic District!
Events on June 23 will include a special dedication ceremony at 11 a.m. with guest speakers, followed by entertainment, refreshments for sale, and docent tours. Prior to the dedication ceremony, railroad veteran and Conway Scenic Railroad founder Dwight Smith will give a presentation at the Freight House at 10 a.m.
We hope, very much, that you will attend.
