1877 New York Central and Hudson River Rail Road Company Document SIGNED BY WILLIAM H. VANDERBILT

New York: Original Document, March 10, 1877. Original Document. Original wraps. 8 1/2 X 14 Inches. 3 PP (Writing on Both sides). Very Good. Item #2234

Original "Agreement" between several New York State landowners and the New York and Hudson River Rail Road Company. The Rail Road seeks to acquire "the right to remove said last mentioned drawbridge and to replace the same by a permanent bridge to be constructed without a draw so as to avoid interruption and delay... of said trains." Signed on the second page by all involved parties including William H. Vanderbilt as Vice-President of the Railroad. Interestingly, 1877 (the year of this document) Vanderbilt became the wealthiest man in America after inheriting his fathers fortune.

In VG condition overall. Areas of paper separation along the left side of the folds, and light toning. The pages are becoming a bit worn at the folds. A few spots. A very appealing document overall.

Price: $500.00
