One Hundred and Fifty Years of Livermore and the Railroad

ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS OF LIVERMORE AND THE RAILROAD

The Livermore Public Library and the Livermore Heritage Guild present Then & Now: Livermore Stories, a local history lecture series. Alan Frank, curator of the Niles Canyon Railway, will give a lecture entitled “One Hundred and Fifty Years of Livermore and the Railroad” on WEDNESDAY, JULY 17TH at 7:00 p.m. in the Civic Center Library Community Rooms.
 
In 1869, the final leg of the Transcontinental Railroad traversed this valley. Livermore grew up around the train station and prospered. Today passenger rail service is making a comeback, and the old Livermore depot is back in operation. Alan Frank will discuss the historical and contemporary relationship between Livermore and the railroad.

Future Then & Now: Livermore Stories programs will occur on August 21 and October 16.
