Students Excavate Boston & Maine Train Depot
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
DURHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE—Students are excavating the site of a train depot that once stood on the campus of the University of New Hampshire. When the campus opened in 1893, the Boston & Maine Railroad split the campus in half. In 1905, a derailment injured 11 passengers and prompted a change in the route. The students have unearthed coal, slag, off-slag, bricks, wood, ceramics, nails, and glass. “It is interesting to find history in our own backyard,” said mechanical engineering student Emily Hutchinson.
