Before and after the October ELHS banquet in the Starrucca House restaurant
within the Susquehanna depot, access was made available to the restored
Great Hall of the depot. I did not take my camera but my wife fortunately
had her trusty Coolpix along in her handbag. I want to share some of her
shots of the magnificent interior. It was obvious on inspection that this
wonderful restoration was within a building that was showing signs of
structural weakening but with minimal funding for maintenance, as we were
the last customers served by the Starrucca House, which is now out of
business, one more victim of the recession. Sadly, this huge structure sits
in an area devoid of tourists, nearby highways, industrial activity, and a
philanthropic base -- so its future must be rather precarious. I think the
combination of this depot and the presence nearby of the Starrucca Viaduct
and, not much further, the Tunkhannock Viaduct give a sense of profundity to
this whole area with its history and the spirit of the railroaders as
manifested in these structures.
