Rails across the Border: The Paulson Mine and the PAD&W Railway
Sunday, July 20
07:00pm - 08:30pm
Although these enterprises originated on different sides of the border, the history of the Paulson Mine and the Port Arthur, Duluth and Western Railway would forever become intertwined during the late 19th century. The rise and failure of both ventures would forever shape the history of the Boundary Waters area. Dave Battistel is a railway historian and history teacher from Thunder Bay, Ontario. Since 1994 he has been actively researching the history of the Port Arthur, Duluth and Western Railway, as well as its associated ventures (silver and iron mining and logging) and speaks regularly about these topics.
