THE ROUNDHOUSE - PRESENTLY "RAILROAD PARK"

AFTER THE FIRE IN 1907

Down over the bank from the roundhouse, near the Connecticut river, and across from No Man's Island,

was a pump house. It was made of brick and the base is still standing. The wooden top has not lasted, however.


It appears the original pipe extending out into the river is still there!

Above the pumphouse, on the bank, was a two story building. The bottom was storage and the second floor was a machine shop. The second floor was attached to the roundhouse. There was a covered nine step stairway leading from the pumphouse to the top floor - machine shop. The three sided flagstone foundation is still in place and would make a great spot for a picnic area.

Between this foundation and the top of the embankment is a footing of very large stone slabs that must have been the back foundation of the roundhouse!

The area along both the Connecticut and Ammonoosuc rivers is a great place for a nature walk. Haverhil Heritage Commission will place historical markers are the above mentions locations.
Please feel free to enjoy all of the facilities and events that are available in Railroad Park.
