Illustrated Program Highlights Sayre Railroad Heritage Day

An illustrated program on railroad history is on tap at the Sayre Historical Society this Saturday as part of Railroad Heritage Day. Author Jeremy Plant will present a 1 p.m. program on “Northeast Railroads Before Conrail: 1967 to 1976.” Admission is free. An all-day scavenger hunt for kids will allow youngsters to explore the story of Sayre on two floors of history at the historic Lehigh Valley Railroad Station. Finally, a one-day “Ice Cream Station” will be set up on the grounds of the museum offering old-fashioned ice cream sandwiches from Bethie’s Place. The event, formerly called Caboose Day, will focus on the importance of railroad history on the development of Sayre and the surrounding Penn-York Valley
communities. Downtown Sayre businesses will also be hosting the second annual Street Faire on Saturday.
