This is Vic Campbell, a railroad enthusiast and tour leader with a particular interest in our country's first commercial railroad that was conceived of and built in Quincy in the 1820s. Vic is sitting on one of the early metal rails embedded into a block of Quincy granite. These blocks were salvaged from new road and housing construction sites and are now located in the back of the Quincy Historical Society building where Vic begins his tours of the Granite Railway historic sites. You can find out more about the "Quarry-To-Wharf" tours by clicking here.
We'll visit the site of the old rail bed tomorrow. Do you know why a railroad was needed? Hint . . . the name of the railroad . . .
