Description

The collection consists primarily of records of the treasurer's office of the railroad. Especially represented are records of Isaac Redington, treasurer in the early 1850's, and S. Stark, treasurer in 1854 and 1855.

The collection contains legal documents, 1850-1858, mostly writs of attachment and a few deeds. A small group of Maine Central Railroad writs, 1866-1870, is also included. These are followed by folders with information about company stocks, notes, and other financial dealings, 1849-1856. The largest section of the collection is made up of bills and receipts, 1849-1856, paid by the company's treasurer. These include payment for time spent working on railroad stations, clearing the roadway, surveying, etc.; for supplies needed to operate and maintain the line; and for wood cut for use of the railroad.
