Bethel residents have signed off on spending $175,000 to repair the historic canopy at the old train station. A special town meeting was held last week. The state deeded the canopy to the town, which owns the old train station building. The facility was constructed in 1899 and is on the state Register of Historic Places. The canopy had fallen into disrepair. The state is chipping in some money toward the work, with the rest to be reimbursed by the tenant of the old train station over the next 6 years. The work will only take a few weeks, but a company with special certification to work near railroad tracks is needed to do the repairs.
