Tri-State is honored to be the first outside group permitted to meet at the brand new Lake Hopatcong Lackawanna station. Through a series of local efforts and the Lake Hopatcong Foundation, the Station has been meticulously restored and has begun its new life as a community center. So much of the original character has been returned, and restored or replaced items replicated in shape and color. It's a beautiful structure. Canal Society of NJ president Joe Macasek and Tri-State President Mike Del Vecchio will each bring presentations relating to the new edifice, based on similar presentations they made for a Lake Hopatcong Foundation audience during its debut lecture season. Joe looked at the Canal and the area iron mines, while Del Vecchio showed the evolution of the Station over the years and some rare views of the Hopatcong Railroad that served Bertrand's Island, the Atlas Powder works and the largest ice house on the Lackawanna.
SPECIAL LOCATION: The meetings begin at 7:15 p.m. at the Lake Hopatcong Station, 125 Landing Road, Landing, New Jersey. Admission is free, and all are welcome. Light refreshments are often available.
