Model Railroad Project
Make sure to visit the Heritage Park Railroad Museum this season and marvel at the HO scale model of the Boston and Maine Railroad as it served the five villages of Wakefield in 1909. The model was painstakingly researched for historical accuracy. A team of volunteer ferroenquinologists, which means "students of the iron horse," has dedicated countless hours and resources to the project, which has been in the works for nearly four years. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the craftsmanship! Click here for more information.
Model stagecoach on display at the Heritage Centre of Wakefield Corner Gallery/Museum. Mugs and other unique items are for sale.
Please visit the Heritage Centre of Wakefield Corner, also known as the Lovell Union Grange, this summer. In June 2006, the Lovell Union Grange organization deeded the property (again for $1.00) to the Wakefield Heritage Commission, which currently uses the building as a museum preserving the Grange heritage, the Stage Stop museum, office and meeting space. The Heritage Centre is generally open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon for the summer. Items such as books, historic reference documents, custom mugs, puzzles, and more are available for sale. The Centre is located at 26 Province Lake Road.
