You can donate a Whinstone in your family’s name or that of a loved one.  Donations are 100% tax deductible, and the name(s) you designate will go on a permanent display on the restored 1906 Burlington Junction Station.

Whinstone donations are $ 100 and can be arranged on-line.  See our “Donate” page for details.
