Railroad Book Creating Opportunities For Alderson
"These   books   are   currently   for   sale   here   in   the Artisan's   Gallery   in Alderson.   They   sell   for   $40.   The   proceeds   from   these books   will   go   to   benefit   Alderson   Main   Street   and   the   projects   we   do   and   especially   in   the   restoration   of   the   depot," Kasley said. The proceeds from the book will allow Alderson Main Street to put on different events for the town. "This   helps   to   keep   our   visitor   center   open.   This   money   mainly   goes   for   special   projects.   Our   next   one   coming   up   will   be our strawberry festival and then we have the 4th of July activities and then our activities on the bridge," said Kasley. The   book   is   sold   in   the   Artisan   Gallery   which   is   open   Thursday   through   Saturday.   They   will   also   accommodate   anyone interested in purchasing the book by calling ahead to town hall at 304-445-2916.

The   Town   of Alderson's   Railroad   Depot   is   nearing   the   completion   of   its   remodel.   Now,   there is   a   book   to   honor   the   history   of   the   structure   and   make   a   difference   in   the   small   town   of southern West Virginia. "This   book,   written   by   Thomas   W.   Dixon,   Jr.,   is   the   history   of   100   years   of   the   Chesapeake and   Ohio   Railroad,   depot,   towers,   and   other   structures. And   the   thing   we   are   most   proud   of is   that   on   the   front   cover   is   the   Alderson   Depot,"   said   member   of   Alderson   Main   Street, Doris Kasley. For a nominal cost, you can have one of your own. ( Click on photo for larger view.)
