The Ties That Bind

Orange steam engine and track; "The Ties That Bind" & exhibition dates 6/21-28 in reverse color

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 will feature 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.
