TRAIN STATION OPEN WEDNESDAY NIGHTS 7 TO 9 PM OR BY APPOINTMENT AND WHENEVER THE "OPEN FLAG" IS FLYING
The Magnolia Train Station will be closed until further notice as a precaution because of the coronavirus. Although we operate a small replica train station museum, the Magnolia Historical Society takes its responsibility to the public seriously. The safety of our members and guests of all ages is of paramount importance. We will post an announcement when we re-open.
Congratulations to Katherine Rossbach,
a Magnolia graduate school resident, for getting an "A" on her Digital Cultural Heritage Project.
Her project was on the Magnolia Train Station and graciously shared it with us.

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR LAST GUEST SPEAKER
About the author (2016) Craig E. Burgess graduated from Audubon High School in Audubon, New Jersey, as the valedictorian of the class of 1963. He entered Rutgers University as a pre-med student, then changed his major after his sophomore year, graduating with a double major in languages: Spanish and German. He received a teaching fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania and, in 1968, was hired as a Spanish instructor for the new Cherry Hill High School East, located only six miles from his home in Audubon. Craig completed his master’s degree at Penn—in education—in 1971 and spent his entire twenty-six-year teaching career at CHHSE, taking early retirement in 1994. While at East, he served as Language Department Chairperson for six years and as faculty advisor to the Spanish Honor Society, the school’s Adopt-A-Grandparent program, and the International Literary Club—a group of students who received national recognition for its language magazine, Passport. Craig’s writing “career” began in 1987—at the age of forty-two—after receiving national recognition for a poem he had composed on one of his forty-one visits to the Hawaiian Islands: a poem entitled “A Fleeting Glimpse of Paradise,” the title selected for this collection of photographs and poems, a collection published after more than thirty years of experiences in the islands
