Nether Providence Historical Society presents a talk by Pierre Lacombe, with maps and pictures.
Many historians say the horse-drawn railway that Thomas Leiper laid out in 1809 from Crum Creek to Ridley Creek, through today’s “Gov. Sproul Estates” was the first commercial railway in the United States.
Lacombe, New Jersey geologic historian, has mapped out a more precise line than was known before.
