Bethel in Fairfield County, Connecticut — The American Northeast (New England)
Bethel Railway Station - 1912
Below is a brief article appearing in the “Danbury News” on May 24, 1899 as the station shown above was nearing completion.
“The interior of the new station is fitted up very comfortably. The waiting room is neatly finished off and furnished with all of the accommodations necessary. The ticket and telegraph office is in the center of the building, between the freight and passenger departments. Agent McMahon has a cozy little office, and just opposite is a small baggage room, which will be in charge of Baggagemaster Beaupin. The new station, although not a large one, will probably meet all requirements, and is certainly substantially built and nicely arranged.”
