Bedford Historical Society & Museum Autumn Speaker Series

BUILDING THE LAKE BRANCH

Join us Thursday, October 7 at 7:00 PM in the Community Hall of the Old Church on the Commons to hear Dr. Dan Rager discuss the Lake Branch line. The story of this line begins as early as 1835 and spanned approximately 185 years. Over the timeline a dozen different railroad company names blanketed the road between Painesville and Youngstown, Ohio. Each company expanded and changed the route between Lake Geauga, and Trumbull Counties. The story of this branch has more turns and twists that the Grand River it was associated with.    

The BHS&M Autumn Speaker Series is scheduled for the first Thursday of the month in September through November. The autumn talks will be held in Bedford, OH in the Community Hall of the Old Church on the Commons. The lectures are FREE to the public. Please plan to join us for these entertaining and educational talks.
