2 I The Lovell Chronicle I January 22, 2015 I2~EEE~I33~ + PATTI CARPENTER Lovell-Kane Museum board member Karen Spragg displays a few of the artifacts already collected for a railroad display that will be constructed in a temporary space in the Lovell Chamber of Commerce building. BY PA'n'I CARPENTER The Lovell-Kane Muse- um is about to embark on a journey to recreate rail- road history for area resi- dents. Using a $7,500 grant awarded last year by the BNSR Railway Founda- tion, museum volunteers are seeking stories, arti- ing the towns in this area." Spragg said preserv- ing the railroad history of the area is long past due. She said a recorded histo- ry will preserve it for years ....... to come. Part of the funds from the grant will be used to build display cases, and facts and mementos of rail- " part will be used to create roads that existed in the area from the early 1900s through 1965. "We are especially in- terested in stories about working for the railroad during that time period," said Karen Spragg muse- um board member. :. Spragg said the sto- ries, photos and other rail- road-related items will be used to create a special display in the temporary museum, currently housed in the Lovell Chamber of Commerce building. "The railroad histo- ry for this area is an im- portant history," explained Spragg. "In around 1906, the railroads came through the area and along with the Lincoln Land Company were responsible for build- photographic displays and to research the project. "We are very inter- ested in talking to any- one who worked for the railroad," she said. "And, we're especially interested in finding any kind of map showing the Chicago, Bur- lington and Quincy Lines (CB&Q). She said CB&Q was instrumental in the early history of the towns in the area. Spragg said she has al- ready met with someone who owns the "little de- pot" building that served as train depot in Kane. "It has writing on the inside of the walls with the schedules," she said. "We hope to come across more interesting artifacts like' this one." McLynn Buchanan June 23, 1944 - Jan. 14, 2015 Roger McLynn Bu- chanan, 70, of Sheridan, died Jan. 14, 2015.
