Westboro Depot update

Lebanon Historical Society would like to thank everyone who contributed to our effort to obtain the old Westboro Depot and save it from demolition.
The current owner has now received approval to move the depot to a new location, partly as a result of the Society’s efforts and the interest of the community.  As a result, the Society will not acquire the building but we are pleased that it will be preserved.
While we’re disappointed that we won’t have the opportunity to use the building, we’re very grateful for all the support we’ve received.




Michelle Sherburne, Upper Valley author of a book by that name, will present an illustrated talk at Kilton Library, 80 Main St., West Lebanon, on THURSDAY 6 APRIL 2017 at 7:00 PM.  I’ll bet you cannot guess which Lebanon home was a station on the Railroad.  Come and learn more. You may even purchase and have her sign your book!
