Scott Jacobs

The Kingston Greenways Association Fall Foliage Walk, “A Walk Through Kingston’s Railroad History,” will be held at 2 p.m. on Oct. 22 at the Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park headquarters building, 145 Mapleton Road, Kingston section of South Brunswick.

Kingston Greenways Association and Kingston Historical Society will co-sponsor the leisurely walk, led by railroad historian John Kilbride. Attendees will begin at the Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park headquarters building and head along the former Camden & Amboy Railroad right-of-way toward Railroad Avenue. Continuing across Ridge Road as far as the turn to the Cook bridge, the group will retrace its steps, roughly following the former Kingston Branch/Rocky Hill Railroad right-of-way to end at the Kingston Lock-tender’s House.

The Lock-tender’s House will be open to participants at the end of the walk, where there will be a small exhibit on the Railroads of Kingston”as well as Paul Kayne’s study models of Kingston lock and the “A” frame bridge.
