Cumberland Valley Railroad/Railtrail: Its History in the Development of the Cumberland Valley and its Re-Creation as a Railtrail Treasure

Come to hear how the Cumberland Valley Railroad developed the area, how it was abandoned when no longer useful as a rail transport, and how it was reclaimed as a local recreational treasure and a lineal pollinator trail.  You will get a glimpse of the dedication of those committed to its development, where it stands now, and its future destination. Jean Spears of the Cumberland Valley Rails-to-Trails Council will discuss landscape initiatives on the trail. Jim Mader will present the history of the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail. This event coordinates with the Historical Society's new exhibit Railroading In The Valley, which opens on April 14th. Hope to see you all there! Mark your calendars!
