Chatsworth Tidbits


The first time the train was used as a logo-September 1881
The Wreck Edition




The Final Edition



This page contains links to little tidbits of Chatsworth news , taken from various old newspapers that I have and items I have found on the web.

Some are news, some are just tidbits. Not news, but maybe something that might help someone doing family research.

I hope that you enjoy this page! And check back as I will be adding new tidbits as I find them.

Each group of tidbits will be dated by the year of the paper that they are taken from, so look for the ones you have not read.
