AARP NH and the Manchester Historic Association: Locomotive Manufacturing in Manchester

All Aboard!!!

We’ve got a virtual seat for you as we take a look back at locomotive manufacturing in the Queen City with the Manchester Historic Association on December 9 at 11 AM.

Although much of the emphasis on Manchester history focuses on textiles, both the Amoskeag Locomotive Works and the Manchester Locomotive Works were astounding in their scope, producing as many as fifty 250-ton steam locomotives a year. 

Join AARP NH and Daniel Peters from Manchester Historic Association for a free webinar to learn more about the history of locomotives in the Queen City.

He holds a master’s degree in Public History from Southern New Hampshire University. He is also an Eagle Scout from Manchester West Side Boy Scout Troop 102 and he is a decorated disabled combat veteran. During his service in the army, he received 16 different awards in the short three-and-a-half-years he served his country. One of those awards was the Purple Heart which he earned in Afghanistan in October 2006. For the better part of the last decade, he has spent his career studying Manchester’s and New Hampshire’s rich history. Mr. Peters also works as a free-lance photographer and archival consultant in the southern New Hampshire area. He is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and teaching New Hampshire’s past.
