A.D. Makepeace acquires Edaville plantation land
« on: May 15, 2009, 08:56:30 PM »
From a 15 May 2009 article in the Quincy (MA) Patriot Ledger:

"CARVER — A.D. Makepeace Co. plans to expand and rehabilitate the cranberry bog portion of the Edaville Railroad property in Carver after acquiring nearly 1,000 acres there for $8 million.

"The railroad-themed amusement park will remain open and the amusement park’s owners will retain 120 acres of land, A.D. Makepeace CEO Michael Hogan said..."

Hopefully this is good news for Edaville USA.

Just read on the friends of Edaville page Makepeace may be trying to buy the railroad. Good or bad I don't know?
