In late June, through your donations and a $25,000 Pepsi Refresh Project grant, we were able to purchase the former Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad's (DL&W) Nicholson Station. This is the first step in our initiative to renovate the station into a community and visitor's center, as well as a gateway to the Viaduct Valley Way Scenic Byway. Through collaboration with all stakeholders, we can return the station to its former role as the center of the community and revitalize our region.
We have applied for a PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant through the Endless Mountains Heritage Region to help defray the costs of a feasibility study, the next phase of our project. We will let you know as soon as we hear more news on this grant.
In the meantime, we would like to thank the following for their generosity of donations to this project: Airline Petroleum,
