Book Launch Event : Iron Roads of the Monadnock Region
December 21 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Railroad historians Bradford G. Blodget and Richard R. Richards, Jr. have been working on their railroad book, “Iron Roads of the Monadnock Region” for seven years in collaboration with the Historical Society. Blodget and Richards have meticulously researched the history of the railroads in the Region from the years 1847 to 2017 and the relationships with the communities they served. The authors have collected over 750 photographs of historical significance, and the book will contain detailed maps and tables of the rail lines of the Monadnock Region in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The Historical Society of Cheshire County is proud to offer this unique and important two-volume set. Anyone with an interest in this region will be intrigued and informed by the images and information that illustrate the huge impact of the railroad on the history of southwest New Hampshire.
Authors will be on hand for questions and autographs.
