Natural gas comes to Freeman Station!

Now, we ARE dedicated to restoring the 1906 Burlington Junction Station’s vintage appearance, but there’s some things we just can’t accomplish.  So instead of re-installing the old coal stoves, for the first time in history, the building will be cozy with modern heating.  We now have gas and hydro in the Station, and water & sewer services will come in soon — all new-fangled conveniences they never enjoyed in the early Twentieth Century, but hey!  Apologies in advance to those who fondly remember trips to the “out” house!
