Brick Memorial Walkway Complete
The Ligonier Valley Rail Road Association has completed the construction of a brick walkway leading to its vintage caboose from the museum parking lot. This was made possible due a grant awarded by the Ligonier Valley Endowment and several anonymous donations. Featured in the walkway is a paver recognizing Judge Thomas Mellon and his sons as the founders of the Ligonier Valley Rail Road. By purchasing bricks the names of a loved one will be memorialized or honored with a personalized engraving. Perhaps your father, mother, or grandfather worked for the railroad and you would like to recognize his or her contribution. The proceeds generated through the sale of these bricks will be added to a capital fund to maintain and update the restored Darlington Station. In preserving the station, future generations will be reminded how the Ligonier Valley Rail Road influenced the development of Ligonier and the Valley. The price per brick is $50 and order forms can be downloaded here, or call 724-238-7819 with your request.
