It is just under a month away but registration for this event is going to fill up very quickly – you will want to register now if you’d like to attend.

This struck the Gazette as one of the more interesting ways to promote the history of the city – and if anything is history in Burlington it is the Freeman Station.


Pauline Grondin – the year is 1920 and she is at the Burlington Junction station in Freeman.

On Saturday, November 19th, well-known professional storyteller Pauline Grondin will again work her magic as she relates, first-person, her story of life around Freeman Station.

The year is 1920, and the Burlington Junction Station in Freeman is a vibrant hub of community comings and goings.

Pauline will bring history to life for us as she relates what’s happening around the village. (A bit of gossip here and there?)
