Railroad Square

This location became a transportation center on August 30, 1851, upon completion of the Cocheco Railroad from Dover to Alton Bay. The first "Mount Washington" steamboat was built here in 1872. For forty years a railroad terminus, here northbound travelers switched to a Shore Railroad opened its line from Alton Bay to Lakeport, only to shut down in 1935. On June 17, 1990, this spot regained its historic name, "Railroad Square," to mark the centennial of the Lake Shore Railroad at that time seven of the line's ten original stations still stood.
