Jerry Kelley has been hiking the hills around the Hoosac
Tunnel in Western Massachusetts for years searching for long
forgotten places of historical interest.
He has tried to bring to light the facts that have been
previously overlooked.
His talk centered on the survey of the Hoosac Tunnel and the methods used to bring the
six headings together with amazing accuracy, even by today’s standards.

He started with a brief 1928 film of a Hoosac electric locomotive and it’s journey through
the Eastern and Western portals.

The PowerPoint presentation outlined each survey tower location as it looks today with
photos and story, some with photos from the 19th century.

The display of his unique Hoosac scale model collection is all hand-made by Jerry Kelley.
