From the Boston Herald, June
16, 1894 - "The interior of this handsome structure seems to be all that
could be desired, nothing has been overlooked which would add to the comfort
or the convenience of the patrons of the road. The main waiting room is
finished of oak, with handsome seats of the same material. One of the
corners has been set apart for the use of the ladies, as a sort of reception
room, and there are many private houses which do not look as comfortable and
homelike. There is a spacious open fire-place, tiles of different colors
have been placed in front, and the entire section separated from the main
room by a lattice of oak. The business offices for the Agent and Telegraph
Operators have been well looked after. The baggage department is furnished
with all modern conveniences. In fact, there is nothing about the structure
which does not show care and thoughtfulness."
Romanesque Style: Made of Milford (Mass.) Pink
