FALLBROOK – Have you seen the action on the corner of Elder Street and Main Avenue? The Fallbrook Village Association announced that Phase Two of the Railroad Heritage Park is underway including infrastructure, decking, fencing and the ticket booth with a clock.
The park will honor the past and educate a new generation about Fallbrook's rich agrarian past, present, future and the rail industry that made it possible. When completed, the downtown park will be opened daily to the public.
The community project is supported by donors who are coming forward to help. Fallbrook residents Roy and Linda Costello have donated an original luggage cart from the Fallbrook Station that will be used at the park.
"We are looking for other old railroad memorabilia," according to the Fallbrook Village Association.
If anyone has something to donate, contact Peter Wilson at 314-249-6679. Those donating items or monies over $500 will be recognized at Railroad Heritage Park. Funds are actively being raised for Phase Three, which will include a town clock, fencing, lighting, landscape, displays, signage and benches. To donate, visit http://fallbrookvillageassociation.org.
