Princeville was once served by 2 railroad lines—the Rock Island and the Santa Fe. Before the 1950s, railroads provided transportation of people and goods throughout the US and linked small towns like Princeville to the rest of the country. Please join us at the Lillie M. Evans Library on June 6th at 6pm for a railroad program by Jim David. Mr. David author of the book, The Rock Island Trail: Echoes From the Past, will take us on a journey to an era when railroads provided fast, reliable transportation and describe how an abandoned railway line became the Rock Island Trail.
