SHS Sturbridge Historical Society - February Meeting 2018

Public House Historic Inn on the Sturbridge Common


Presentation by Larry Lowenthal - Sturbridge and the Railroads

Mr. Lowenthal a well known local historian, will focus on railroads in this area and describe the travel possibilities they offered and how they influenced local communities.  During the great age of railroads, towns that were not fortunate enough to be on a rail line were affected as much as those that had rail service.  Mr. Lowenthal is a retired historian for the national park service and is the author of several books among them Titanic Railroad and the story on New England's last great railroad war.

Historical Society meetings are free of charge with dessert and meeting room provided by Michael Glick, Publick House Innkeeper.  Our sincere thanks go out to Mr. Glick.  

Society annual dues are $10.00 which help support the cost of speakers.  Meetings are held September through May on the fourth Thursday of the month except November and December, November's meeting is held the first Thursday in December.  All meetings start at 7PM.  Public is welcome.
