Westfield, Massachusetts Railway Station Postcards

"Railway Station, Westfield, Mass." (Date Unknown)

"Westfield, Mass. The Railway Station" (1914)

Here's a brief magazine article on the "Practicability and expediency of establishing a rail road on one or more routes from Boston to the Connecticut River," published in 1827 by William L. Lewis, editor of the Boston Daily Advertiser, in The North American Review. Interestingly, the article mentions another project being floated at the time: a Boston to Connecticut River Canal.

For some photographs of the Westfield train station, check out the EWM post, Westfield, Massachusetts Railway Station Photos.

As always, thanks for stopping by and take care!
