June 2023

June 25 - Lehigh Valley Locomotive #252 received an official welcome to the Village of Williamsville today! This authentic Lehigh Valley Railroad locomotive was generously donated by Greenidge Generation of Dresden, New York to the WNYRHS in 2021. After its recent restoration, it now sits on static display at the Williamsville Depot Historic Site Museum, 86 S. Long Street, for all to admire and enjoy.

Below are some of the many event highlights captured by Society Trustee, Devan Lawton. Thank you!
