Over one hundred years ago, Newburgh was a prominent nexus within the northeastern railroad network as well as a focal point for trains crossing the river. The Newburgh Branch of the New York & Erie Railroad, built in 1850, was the city’s first connection by rail to the country and continued to operate until its tracks were removed in the 1980s. Join local author and historian Alex Prizgintas, as he uncovers the history of Newburgh’s first railroad, its transformation through time, and its appearance today. Walk-ins welcome.
