Sentimental Sunday: Ohio's First Railroad Marker in Sandusky
This historical marker is located near Battery Park along Sandusky Bay, in Sandusky, Ohio. Ground was broken for the Mad River and Lake Erie Railroad here in September of 1835. The introduction of the railroad in northern Ohio provided jobs for local residents, and increased the economy by providing the means to transport goods produced locally, as well as goods that were shipped in to Sandusky via the Great Lakes.. Visit the Mad River and NKP Railroad Museum in Bellevue, Ohio, to learn more about the history of Ohio's railroads!
