Silverton Tracks

Silverton had its beginnings in the post-Revolutionary War land grants.
The future of the community was forever changed in 1883 when the Cincinnati, Lebanon & Northern Railroad opened a line through town.
Well here I am in Silverton at the village green style park.



Honoring those from the village who served our country.

A replica of the station was constructed in 1976 and serves as a museum.

It houses historic photographs and artifacts from the City’s past, including the Olympic uniform of Barry Larkin, a retired Reds player and Silverton native son. 

The pole says May Peace Prevail On Earth.


 


Do I hear a train coming?


We are having lovely days in the midwest. 
The temperature is in the high sixties and lows in the mid forties.
Lee and I, Sweet William The Scot, are in our car going up river this week.
We decided to do a mini vacation.



Oh my gosh the bench here at the station says donated by the Republican and Democratic Parties in 2006.  Yep guess that was the last time they worked together and they actually managed to get a whole bench together!




Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of  mine

  2. Ringy-Dingy-Dingy! Sir William, it sounds as if you are having lovely Autumn weather! I wish we had the same here though it has been a bit cooler and less humid. Why that is a nifty place you visited. You are so good at sniffing out your Nati City history! I hope you and your Lee enjoy your mini vacation.
    Your friend...until the end!

  15. My peeps saw Larkin play in person.

    If the Democrats and Republicans agree on anything, it is time to hold on to your wallet and/or purse.

  17. Going "up the river" has some bad connotations.

    1. Martha Raddatz on political coverage last night was talking about Ohio and the poor disenfranchised no college education in Ohio ~ well we certainly saw that for the days we were away and the counties we were in were hammered with Trump signs.

  18. What a nice little bit of history you have there! It reminded petcretary of the railroad museum close to Washington DC...their station looks quite similar.
    Did you get to ride on a train?
    Frostburg, Maryland also has a nice old train you can go on a ride. Its a steam engine!
