Kudos to The Turbotville Borough Heritage Society for their efforts to return the original train station back to its home in Turbotville! Built in 1886, it is the only remaining station from the line, and it has traveled many miles, for a building!
Long after regular passenger service ended in Turbotville, the station was moved to Bloomsburg to be part of the Magee Transportation museum, which sadly is now closed. If you live in the Susquehanna Valley, chances are you’ve seen signs to “Bring the station home!” as residents of Turbotville want the historic structure back home where it belongs.
Details of their journey, and much more detailed history of Turbotville and the railroad can be found at www.turbotville.org or call Society President Mike Sechler 649-5289 to donate a hand or $$. Both are needed to bring this vision full circle.
