Grand Gateways: The Train Stations of the Main Line
Wednesday, May 27th, 7 p.m.
As Lower Merion, Radnor, Tredyffrin and Easttown townships became summer retreats of Philadelphia's wealthiest families in the 19th century, the Main Line of the Pennsylvania Railroad became the commercial and social backbone of the region. The stations along the Main Line were conceived as grand statements of corporate superiority and evolved to become recognizable gateways to their communities. Join speaker Greg Prichard for a discussion of the history, architecture and preservation efforts of the stations between Overbrook and Paoli. Registration is required. Click here to register online.
