How the Railroad Came to Perry
By Charlie Adams

The Perry Area Historical Society will host Charlie Adams who will speak with guests at Springhill School on Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 7 p.m. about how the railroad came to Perry. Most towns became county seats after they acquired the railroad, but Perry acquired the railroad a half century after it became the county seat. Learn interesting facts about routes, costs, and famous travelers. Admission is free but seating is limited. Please call 224-4442 or email [email protected] by February 18 to reserve your seat.
