The Nicholson Heritage Association (NHA) held its grand opening ceremony for the Nicholson Tourism Center at the renovated and historic Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad (DL&W) Railroad Station on July 8. The station, located at 21 Lackawanna Trail (Route 11) in Nicholson, attracted a large crowd for the ceremony, including state legislators, county commissioners, community members, and a large group of organizational leaders who played a role in bringing the Nicholson Tourism Center to fruition.
In additional to other financial support, including a PennDOT Transportation Alternatives Program grant, the NHA received several grants from the Endless Mountains Heritage Region’s Partnership/Mini-Grants program since 2013 to help cover the cost of a feasibility study, interior improvements, and museum exhibits.
The Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station will help revitalize the region by attracting tourists to the station, the Tunkhannock Creek Viaduct (also known as the Tunkhannock Viaduct or the Nicholson Bridge), Nicholson, historic Tunkhannock, Wyoming County, and the Endless Mountains.
