Happy Ending

It's another chapter in the seemingly never ending saga of East Stroudsburg's Dansbury Depot.  It looks like we're finally heading for a happy ending.

The Civil War era train station was heavily damaged in an October 2009 fire.  The owner wanted to tear it down.  People objected.

Part of the station was demolished to make way for a new building.  The remaining section will be saved and moved to a near by site.
Steel beams now support the structure, enabling the move.  Tomorrow should be the day.  The new site is below-- near the signal tower.

It looks like everybody wins.  The developer gets to construct a new building, and East Stroudsburg saves part of its history.
