Observance of the centennial of the Maine Central Railroad Company, the State of Maine's largest railroad which serves 14 of the 17 counties in Maine, is being held at Waterville because it was in Waterville that the Maine Central was incorporated on October 28, 1862.

Waterville is also the geographical center of Maine Central system which today serves from Portland to Eastport and Vanceboro; to St. Johnsbury, Vermont, and also through sections of New Hamshire. Its general offices are located in Portland, Maine.

Maps, photographs, drawings, and essays richly portray the history of the Maine Central from 1862 to 1962.
