LAKEPORT COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

. . . did not get sidetracked

 

Through hard labor and fund-raising efforts, Lakeport Community Association (LCA) members have raised and spent over $1,00,000 on the historically correct rehabilitation of the freighthouse.  This is nearly completed and will open soon as a museum of Lakeport and Boston & Maine memorabilia and as a community room.

 

Another dream was just realized when LCA purchased a 50 foot, 40 ton, metal boxcar from Peter Dearness of New England Southern Railroad Company in Concord.  It was moved and stored a siding in Tilton until the sidetrack at the freighthouse could be repaired and in place. On May 18, 2008, the Hobo Railroad moved it to its new home in Lakeport.

 

The LCA raised funds to restore the boxcar, researched its history and painted it historically correct.  They still reach out to railroad lovers for funds, in-kind services or whatever support one would care to add. 

 

The Lakeport Community Association, founded in 1997, is a non-profit organization dedicated to improve appreciation and enlighten the public about the Lakeport community and its heritage, especially as a hub for the Boston & Maine Railroad. The LCA meets at the freighthouse the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month and is open to the public. LCA eagerly welcomes visitors and support.
