This three-week Environmental Studies Institute course explores our local railroad history. On June 8, Alan Rumrill will give an illustrated talk on the railroad's influential role in the Monadnock Region. On June 15 and 22, we’ll carpool to various sites to see the remnants of this history firsthand and to explore the new ways these old byways are now being enjoyed.
