The Interactive Railway Village In Boothbay Maine That Will Enchant Train Lovers

For those who love Maine history, one of the most fascinating areas is how our railway system got its start. Much of it was related to the logging industry, but it was also vital to making Vacationland a go-to destination among Boston and New York elites. The first railroad companies here got their start in 1832 and the first tracks were finished in 1836. But, there’s so much more to learn! To do it, head to this fun and interactive museum.
