    Historical Context

    The Sullivan Railroad was incorporated in New Hampshire in 1848 and was based in Charleston.

     

    The company's line extended from the western bank of the Connecticut River, a little south of the village of Windsor, in the state of Vermont, through a part of the town of Cornish, and through the towns of Claremont and Charlestown, and intersects the Cheshire railroad in Walpole, near Bellows Falls in New Hampshire - a distance of about 24 miles.

     

    The Sullivan Railroad later became part of the Boston and Maine system.
