Workin' on the Railroad

The Carrabelle History Museum is featuring another fascinating talk about the railroad industry on Saturday, September 30 from 10 am to noon at the upstairs meeting room of the C-Quarters Marina.  The program will focus on the time when trains brought in hundreds of visitors to our coast and shipped out seafood, lumber and naval stores throughout the country. Nelson Martin from the Sopchoppy Railroad Depot Museum has much to tell about the booming industries brought here by the railroads during the turn of the century. A special feature of this program will be musician and folklorist Frank Lindamood who knows many songs that reflect the lives of the working class people of those times. Don't miss this special free program!
