Barnard's station
« on: July 21, 2019, 06:38:10 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?

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.

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