The Historical Society of Rockland County Invites You to Join Us on a Daytrip to Explore

Railroads and Waterways in the Poconos

When: Friday, August 16, 2019
Where: Leaves the Historical Society of Rockland County parking lot, 20 Zukor Road, New City, at 8:00 AM and returns to the HSRC at 8:00 pm (rain or shine)
Price: $109/person (HSRC Members); $119/person (Non-members). Includes all admissions, tour fees and tips, and lunch aboard the Stourbridge Line excursion train

Our journey starts at the Delaware & Hudson Canal Park’s Lock 31 in Palmyra Township. Built in the 1820s, the canal carried coal from northeastern Pennsylvania’s mines to the Hudson River at Kingston. We’ll then head to the Wayne County Visitor Center and Wayne County Historical Society in Honesdale for a tour of the Wayne County Historical Museum, home of a full-size replica of the Stourbridge Lion, the first steam locomotive in the United States.


After the tour, we’ll board the Stourbridge Line excursion train for a rail ride along the Lackawaxen River and lunch aboard a dining car. After disembarking at the Hawley train station, we’ll travel to the Dorflinger Factory Museum for a tour of exhibits exploring the history of this glassmaking company. At 5:30, we’ll start for home.
