Title: Barnard's station
Post by: Jeff Schumaker on July 21, 2019, 02:38:10 PM
While looking through old issues of The Bridgton News, I came across the mention of Barnard's station on the B&SRRR. Where would that have been located?

That is a new one to me Jeff. When was it mentioned?

It was July 22, 1898, in regards to rerouting a road to connect with the new road between Barnard's station and South Bridgton. I also came across a report in the April 22, 1898 issue regarding minor vandalism at the Ingalls road depot.

Came across the following article in the July 9th, 1897, edition of the Bridgton News.

I wonder if it was the original name for Ingalls..

Jeff’s July 22 post mentions Barnard and Ingall’s suggesting two separate places. Does anyone have a TT that would help?
