Wrap-up of Second Public Meeting
on our Railroad Station Initiative.

Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station


On Thursday, August 14, 2014, at 2:00 p.m., we held our second public meeting on our railroad station project at at the Nicholson Fire Company Hall (thank you Nicholson Fire Company!) at Main and Walnut Streets in Nicholson.  Light refreshments were available, thanks to the Inn the Beginning.  Click here for a summary.

The Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station is moving forward and we now wait to hear if the project is a recipient of a Transportation Alternatives Program grant, which would cover the renovations of the historic station.  While you may have not seen much outside work being done on the station, it's because we've been laying a solid foundation in order to ensure the project is a success!  Keep your fingers crossed!

The Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station will promote tourism and attract visitors to the region by being a visitor’s center linking to the Viaduct Valley Way Scenic Byway and Steamtown, as well as a provide a place for community events.
