One Response to TAKE A BITE OUT OF HISTORY – hidden in plain sight – Can you guess?

  1. Sam's dad says:

    Image 2 is along the bike path, between mill street and the center. My guess is these are the remains of a railroad siding, storage track or small rail yard. When the bike path was an active fright railroad, this siding or storage track would have existed alongside the mainline which occupied the bike paths’ right of way. You can tell it was for holding rail cars because of the metal structures above the track itself. My guess is that it was a storage track to serve a nearby industry on mill street.
