The Canadian Pacific Railroad in Brownville Junction Maine, History project

 is a Work in Progress. The project is moving forward but every once in a while we stumble.


Part of the project contains a listing of all the assets that belonged to the CPR at the train yard in Brownville. The listing will be followed by a written description of the item and its reason and purpose for existence. That is the plan. However, from time to time these items need to be tagged with the name that they were called by CPR employees and the townspeople. Here we have depicted photographs of one of those buildings. None of the buildings depicted in the photos was the one that was installed in Brownville, however they are very close approximations. The technical name for this behemoth... Read More

This article submitted by Susan Worcester. It appeared in the latest Historical Society Newsletter (Fall, 2016)

                  In my work with the Historical Society including visits and conversations with people who lived here or still live here I have found that there are many interesting stories that need to be told. Already, in the few years that I have been active with the museum we have lost people with incredible knowledge and memories of the “old” Brownville and the Junction. My winter project is to make sure that we don’t lose more!

                  I have had the pleasure this spring and summer of having several conversations with Betty Ellis Cassidy and with Vi Hatton Goodrow who love to talk about the years they grew up in Brownville.... Read More
