Reminder: Public Meeting
on our Railroad Station Initiative.

Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station


The Nicholson Heritage Association will hold its second public meeting today on our effort to rehabilitate the historic Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad’s (DL&W) Station in Nicholson.

The Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station is moving forward and the public is invited to attend a second public meeting to thank those who have helped with the initiative and to provide an update on the economic development effort.

The meeting is today (Thursday, August 14, 2014) at 2:00 p.m. at the Nicholson Fire Company Hall on Main and Walnut Streets in Nicholson. Light refreshments will be served. Since the weather is agreeable, interested meeting participants will have an opportunity to see the inside of the station after the meeting.  Hope you can make it!

With an Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR) grant through the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), the Association earlier this year completed a feasibility study to evaluate the rehabilitation of the station into a community and visitor’s center. The Association worked with Facility Design & Development and The Institute for Public Policy & Economic Development, both of Scranton, on this portion of the overall project. The Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station will promote tourism and attract visitors to the region by being a visitor’s center linking to the Viaduct Valley Way Scenic Byway and Steamtown, as well as a provide a place for community events.
