Lecture with Author Jonathan Hively
The first mountain-climbing cog railway in the world celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. The train makes a spectacular climb up a 3-mile long trestle to the 6,288-foot summit of Mount Washington. Jonathan Hively worked for the railway as firefighter, brakeman and engineer for 13 years.
Everyone is invited to join us Monday, Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building as Hively shares his many adventures and discusses the history of the Cog Railway. His book, “First Out: My Life on the Mt. Washington Cog Railway,” will be available for purchase ($24.95) and signing.Posted in: Events, News
