Remembering the past

Richard Dorsch (left) and Paula Morrow (right) portray local historical community leaders Darius Miller and Margaret D. Trimble, respectively, during Saturday’s National Train Day at the Princeton Amtrak Railroad Depot and the neighboring Darius Miller Park. As told by the actors, Trimble wrote a letter to Miller in 1910 asking if he could help Princeton update its train depot, which he did. A new depot was built and dedicated in December 1911. Other activities during Saturday’s event included music by the local Barbershoppers group, a historic train display and food vendors.
