Rails in Delaware
@ Delmar Public Library

Monday, August, 12, 1:30 - 3:00 PM

The railroad was once an important link to the outside world for many Delawareans and the local depot was the center of the community, a place to catch a train and learn the news of the day.  As tracks spread downstate, growth followed the lines. This slide-illustrated program traces the social history of trains in the First State, from the beginning of the railroad age to the present.  

Presented by historian and writer, Mike Dixon.  Dixon is a historian and writer whose research and teaching focuses on social history and community studies.  Brought to you by the Delaware Humanities.
