In­ter­pre­ta­tion pan­els in Coat­i­cook

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS -

The City of Coat­i­cook, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Beaulne Mu­seum, re­cently in­stalled three in­ter­pre­ta­tion pan­els re­lated to the his­tory of the old train sta­tion and the de­vel­op­ment of the city that en­sued be­cause of the ar­rival of the rail­way in 1853. One of the pan­els even re­counts sev­eral facts re­lated to the pas­sage of the train.

The pan­els, cre­ated by Fran­cis Riendeau of Car­bone Graphique, reuses ma­te­rial used in the con­struc­tion of the rail­way and trains. The team of Jean Gagnon and Philippe Se­vi­gny from the mu­nic­i­pal work­shop worked, along with Mr. Riendeau, to cre­ate the struc­ture made of sec­tions of rail.

Peo­ple of the area and vis­i­tors, in­clud­ing those on the Or­ford Ex­press who stop at the old sta­tion, can now learn a lot about the his­toric build­ing and about the his­tory of the rail­way in Coat­i­cook.
