History of the Cheshire Rail Trail
May 16, 1848 was an important date for the residents of Keene as the first train to reach the town pulled into the station that day. The railroad closed in the early 1960s and is now known as the Cheshire Recreational Rail Trail. This historic trail has been a popular attraction in the southwest region of New Hampshire ever since.
