Another Marshfield Historical Bus Tour: Back by popular demand!!

 “When the Railroads Came to Marshfield:” Conductor Bill Frugoli and Tour Guide, Cindy Castro, shared their research on the railroad era in Marshfield.  After this meeting there were many requests to follow up on this presentation.   Now, these two will take us on a bus tour and show us exactly where those stations were and relate more stories of these times.

Reservations will be accepted beginning September 1st.

 Price is $20 for members of the Society and $25 for Non-members.  Checks should be made out to “Marshfield Historical Society” and sent to Jane Davidson, 79 Parker Street, Marshfield, MA 02050.   The past 3 bus tours have been sold out, so make reservations early!! Departure/Return will be from the parting lot at the 1699 Winslow House at Careswell and Webster Streets.
