at the newly renovated and expanded Chester Library.
Mr. Oliveto will discuss the short history of the Rockaway Valley Railroad,

name "Rock-a-Bye Railroad" originated, and other interesting facts about
early railroad development in the area.
The program is open to the public as well as CHS members. There is no fee
