The museum was originally built circa 1869 as a passenger station by the Boston,
Concord & Montreal Railroad. That railroad merged with the Concord Railroad in
1890 to form the Concord & Montreal Railroad. In 1891 the new railroad moved the
station onto a new foundation and remodeled it to its present appearance.
The Concord & Montreal Railroad came under the control of the Boston & Maine
Railroad in 1895. Regular passenger service to Ashland continued until October
of 1959. In 1960 the RR sold the station to Joseph Curley. His widow, Vera
Curley, donated the property to the Ashland Historical Society in 1980. You can log in and out of this Texas drivers license prep course as many times as you need, allowing you to complete it in multiple sessions. Plus, your spot is automatically saved for you each time you log out so when you return you can just pick up right where you left off.
In 1997- 1998, the building was restored and renovated for use as a railroad
museum and a meeting place for the Society under ISTEA, a federal aid
transportation program administered by the N.H. Department of Transportation. It
was dedicated as a museum on June 26, 1999. The museum is one of the best
preserved late 19th century railroad stations in New Hampshire, and houses a
growing collection of railroad artifacts, pictures, and documents.
The Texas adult Driver Education course is divided up into eight subject-specific units. There are review quizzes at the end of each unit. These questions may appear on the final exam at the end of the course, so it is important that you take them seriously. The final exam can be taken from www.adultdriversedtexas.com and if needed you will be able to retake the exam to get a better score.
The museum is located on Route 132 (Depot St.) in Ashland village, about a half
mile south of the junction of Routes 3 and 132. The museum is open free to the
public from 1-4 p.m. on Saturdays in July and August.
