Lindenhurst Historical Society

This is an unofficial website for the society. This website shows the Lindenhurst Long Island Railroad station which is now located just west of the present station in Lindenhurst.

This station was taken out of service in 1973 when the Long Island Railroad elevated the tracks in the area. The original station was built in 1901.  The Historical Society has intentions of adding a caboose to the freight station with some help from Engine #35 in Oyster Bay.

The society may also be looking for a passenger car to put on this site.  If anyone has  any information on where the society can get these items please contact them.

The 33 mile marker from NYC which was located on the original LIRR tracks.

The site has added a caboose from this era and hopefully will be painting
it in the LIRR paint scheme of this era. I have taken pictures of it and will soon add them to the website.
