Mr. De Marco recently found the sign in his attic, which was being used upside-down as footboard. After turning it over, he noticed what it was and donated it to the Maywood Station Museum on September 30, 2012. Thank you Mr. De Marco, for returning a significant piece of Maywood Station’s history to the museum!

The MSHC thanks Tom Charette of the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway for his help in promptly removing the tree limb and Maywood resident Johnny Hayes for quickly and professionally repairing the roof damage. MSHC members performed the interior ceiling repairs, which were completed in time for the November 4, 2012 Museum Open House.
