The Ties That Bind: Railroading in NEPA

June 21 - July 28, 2023

In partnership with the Back Mountain Railroad Club, this art exhibition focuses on the historical significance of the Lehigh Valley Railroad, which stretched from Buffalo, New York, to New York City, New York, during its run from 1846 to 1976.

This exhibit features train-themed photography and artwork by regional artists, including Bloomsburg-based artist Oren B. Helbok. On display will be a model train layout of Dallas Borough and surrounding areas of the Back Mountain from the late 1930's through the late 1940's.
