Artifact collection

Thanks to the generosity of Burlingtonians and others farther afield, the Friends of Freeman Station has accumulated a large collection of railway-related artifacts and documents. Many were displayed to the public for the first time in our exhibit at Joseph Brant Museum in the fall of 2014. Here is a small sample of what we have.

If you have something to donate we would be happy to issue you with a charitable tax receipt for the appraised value of the artifact.
