New York Central Pump House Light
We have an unusual light for the entrance walkway to the Relic Garden mounted on the end of our Texaco Gas Station - Country Store replica. The light was thrown away from the old New York Central pump house at Gauley Bridge, WV on the Kanawha River. The structure provided water from the river for steam engines working on the branch between Charleston, WV, the Virginian at Deepwater and beyond to several coal mines.
