Nicholson Heritage Association is based in Nicholson, PA, an almost untouched old-fashioned town in Northeast Pennsylvania. There is much heritage to preserve, and this group has chosen to preserve the old RR station. The Steamtown RR from Scranton, comes to Nicholson and travels over the Nicholson Bridge as a memorable trip for tourists and locals alike. At Christmas time, the RR train is lit up with colorful Christmas colors. Besides preserving the old Nicholson RR station, the group does have an annual Nicholson Bridge Day--this year it is September 8th--and celebrates the history of the area with local vendors and local music, a BBQ cookout, honoring the flag with colors in the morning, etc. This organization is a grassroots effort to keep alive the heritage we all see in books--but here we can see it in real life.
The Nicholson Heritage Association NHA) focuses on the local community of Nicholson and the heritage of this beautiful, local village which is struggling to remake itself in its Victorian roots. The Nicholson Bridge, also known as the Tunkhannock Viaduct, is a large part of the NHA's roots. Every year, Nicholson Borough and the NHA celebrates Nicholson Bridge Day, by organizing a group of volunteers. The historical celebration draws people from all over the area, keeping alive the history of the area. The NHA is very important to the area for having purchase the old Nicholson Railroad station, with plans to restore it. Presently they are working on fundraising for this project. It is essential that we all support these efforts so that the history of special areas, such as Nicholson, are kept alive for all generations to enjoy.

Nicholson Heritage Association does a great job of improving the neighborhood, restoring local heritage and keeping the community informed and involved. Nicholson is a beautiful town and the Nicholson Bridge is certainly something everyone should have the chance to see.
Every time I drive past this magnificent bridge I am in awe. nearly 100 years old - are you kidding me/ this structure is still in excellent condition. So many times i have had to take my photographer wife back to where i saw an awesome view with the sun behind it, wildlife in the creek in thr foreground of the bridge, or whatever. It is truly a site to behold. Hats off to those who have dedicated their time to commiting to renovate the old train station on Route 11. When it is completley revitalized, it will add another dimension to the already wonderful things to see in the Nicholson area as well as bring visitors to the entire region.
The Heritage is a very dedicated group supporting every effort to preserve the history of the town which also has the world's largest steel reinforced railway bridge. We are working to renovate and restore a railroad station built in 1849. A significant building in our town's history. We strive to bring tourism into Nicholson which also helps the businesses. Any fund raiser or event will always find members of the Nicholson Heritage Association out there doing all they can to make it a success. Each member freely donates their time in obtaining historical facts or items to share with the local residents and tourists. Organized in 1989 the Association and its members have always worked to make the history of the town more available to the public. It is a real privilege to state you are a member of the Nicholson Heritage Association.
The Nicholson Heritage Association / aka: NHA is by far one very important organization for the sake of this area with keeping area history alive and healthy. Since the NHA has bought the old freight station and knowing another historical building will be renewed and refurbished is a dauntless task but with all the railroad enthusists and the local people I am sure the town of Nicholson is going to be rewarded more than it realizes. I am very proud of what the NHA has accomplished in the past and what its future is going to mean to all of us.
The N.H.A. has long been interested in helping keep the past of the area alive. With the purchase of the local rail station - their mission has not only become more important, but also more critical. Going forward this group will maintain and preserve a part of not only local history, but a piece of National history as well. Keep your eyes open for great things from this group...
