A little bit about this layout


Each year, the Friends of Historic Vineland have sponsored a "Founder's Day" event for the benefit of the school children and the people of this area.

The event has grown larger every year. This one had the members of the Friends in conjunction with local Civil War Reenactors hosting all of the third grade school children of the Vineland School District at the Elwin School Complex ( the old Ames Training School) located at Main Road and Landis Avenue with a living history event.

The event always includes trains running to demonstrate the importance of the railroad to the grow of Vineland.

There was a session in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Discussions and demonstrations were presented of the history of Vineland and of the Civil War. Each session ended with a Civil War reenactment event and the firing of guns and cannon.

In the evening, the Civil War reenactors set up their tents.
