Subject

Students board train from North Palmyra to Wildwood

Description

On Friday, May 1, 1908 students from Palmyra High School boarded the train in North Palmyra on this momentous occasion. Here, they left Station 812 at 9:45 and traveled to the next station – Wildwood. Although this station had no memorable name, and was just a wooden shed, the people of Palmyra still believed it to be a wonderful start to the new Virginia Airline. By connecting this railroad through Palmyra to Charlottesville, Fluvanna began to grow and prosper.
