“Seaboard Trail Guided Tour” to be offered at Hamlet Depot

The Town of Hamlet has long been a vital link in the east coast railway system, and the Hamlet Depot & Museums are offering a deeper look at the town’s rail history with the “Seaboard Trail Guided Tour”, planned for one day a month through the rest of the year.

Depot and museums director Miranda Chavis told the Richmond Daily Journal that visitors can “walk with museum staff down the streets of Hamlet’s historic downtown (and) see local landmarks that were shaped by the town’s rich railroad legacy.” Chavis said the guided tour offers participants a way to “literally unravel history one step at a time, even as (the tour) turns Hamlet into a town-wide museum.”

Visitors can take the tour anytime on their own, and the guided tour will be offered at 1 p.m. on the second Saturdays of September, October, November and December at the Hamlet Depot & Museums. Information is available at 910-582-0603.
