As an organization we are thrilled to say that we own land in Bridgton! This is an amazing milestone we hit as a collective board and we looking forward to the future of developing this property into a new living museum and railyard in the town of Bridgton. The community support and outreach has been amazing and we sincerely thank everyone that has helped us get to this point!
A special thank you is in order for the Rolfe Corporation which agreed to the sale of the 5.1 acre plot on Home Run Road in Bridgton. This location is ideal for us, as the original railbed for the B&SR lies just across Sandy Creek from this location.
Our next major milestone was getting our 501c(3) acceptance letter from the IRS. While not the largest accomplishment, it has opened the door to further fundraising efforts moving forward.
The first milestone our organization achieved was in October of 2020, when the Bridgton & Saco River Railroad Museum Inc. became an official business and legal entity. This milestone would mark the beginning of a long journey to return the B&SR to Bridgton.
