1892 Brookline & Pepperell Railroad Opening Day – Souvenir

The remarkably well preserved woven cloth artifact measures 2 1/2″ wide by 6 3/4″ long, with a small fringe on the top and bottom edges. Recently found, this previously unknown souvenir has made its way back to Brookline, NH as one of the centerpieces in a private collection that one day will donated to the BHS. As the only known surviving SOUVENIR from the opening celebration of the Brookline & Pepperell Railroad on September 8, 1892, this piece has shown there are historically significant items just waiting to be found!
