KGA Fall Foliage Walk

Kingston Greenways Association and Kingston Historical Society will host "A Walk Through Kingston's Railroad History" on Sunday, October 22, 2017, at 2 pm. This leisurely fall foliage walk will be led by railroad historian John Kilbride. After 34 years with Amtrak, John is now the moderator of the Camden & Amboy Railroad Historians and Railroads of Trenton Facebook groups.

The walk will start at the Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park headquarters building at 145 Mapleton Road, Kingston, and will end at the Kingston Locktender's House. The Locktender's House will be open to participants, where there will be a small exhibit on the "Railroads of Kingston" as well as Paul Kayne's study models of Kingston lock and the "A" frame bridge (once at Kingston). For more information, visit KGA.

This event is free. All are welcome, but RSVPs are appreciated to ensure a sufficient number of handouts. If you plan to attend, please email tari@kingstongreenways.org using "RR Walk" as the subject.
