Be sure to come by and see the new “Railroad to Rail Trail” exhibit on display upstairs at Town Hall! Author David A. Mark has incorporated much of Maynard’s rail history in this unique exhibit. An actual Maynard section of the Boston and Maine railroad is on display, including a tie, baseplate, spikes, rail, and “date” nails, all recovered from the former rail corridor. The Assabet River Rail Trail is being built on the existing rail bed and will be open for use in the spring of 2018.

Mark’s books, “MAYNARD: History and Life Outdoors” and “Hidden History of Maynard” are both available for purchase at the Maynard Paper Store.
