One Day Getaways
Grand Influences: Architectural Station Tours: Brewster
Come celebrate the 100th birthday of Grand Central Terminal with the Metro-North Railroad Commuter Council at the Village of Brewster’s Founders Day! The Council is proud to highlight Grand Central’s influences throughout the Metro-North system and the historic Brewster station on the Harlem Line is a perfect example of how the railroad can help establish a community.
This year the annual Founder’s Day will be bigger and better than ever! When you arrive the Council will greet you at the station with informational tables, a children’s activity, and a chance to win a trip to Grand Central Terminal with lunch and a tour!
During the festivities the Metro-North Railroad Commuter Council will host presentations by a Putnam County Historian who will address the historical significance of Brewster Station and the impact of Metro-North Railroad. Founder’s Day crowds will be entertained by local bands and performers as they peruse the vendor tents that line Main Street. Attendees can check out classic cars, enjoy a variety of food from local restaurants, find a bargain at the book sale, and buy art from local artists. There is no admission fee and there are plenty of attractions for the entire family. It will be a day of history and fun!
Take the Harlem Line to Brewster Station. The festivities will be just outside on Main Street.
