The Belvidere-Delaware Railroad ran along the eastern bank of the Delaware River from Trenton through Phillipsburg and beyond to Manunka Chunk in Warren County. The arrival of the railroad in 1851 brought significant changes to the communities along its route. These effects were not limited to economic opportunities, but also resulted in long-lasting impacts on the societal and cultural aspects within the region.
In this presentation, we will travel back in time to explore the by-gone days when the Bel-Del Railroad was an integral facet in daily life for the citizens of the Hopewell Valley.
Robert Lawless is a board member of the Hopewell Valley Historical Society, and Chairperson of the Program Planning Committee. His extensive research has focused upon the development and operations of railroads in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. Robert has worked in the railroad industry for most of his career, and presently employed by a regional transportation authority.
Co-sponsored by the Hopewell Valley Historical Society, the Hopewell Museum, the Hopewell Township Historic Preservation Commission, and the Titusville Presbyterian Church.
