SCVHS Docent Training.
The Saugus Train Station.


Notes.

This document was probably compiled by SCV Historical Society curator Jerry Reynolds around 1991 — after "The Grifters" (1990) and prior to the 1992 publication of Ruth Newhall's second book about The Newhall Land and Farming Company. Sources follow each paragraph.

Clarifications/corrections:

(Page 2 ff.): The correct spelling is Tolfree. James Herbert Tolfree (not James A.) founded the diners; Joseph Herbert Tolfree (same middle name) ran the Saugus diner.

(Page 2): In 1891 it was "Saugus." It was "Surrey" from 1906-1915.

(Page 3): The story about President Theodore Roosevelt in 1903 needs verification.

(Page 4): The appellation "Buffalo" is incorrect. Although the robber Tom Vernon did claim to be "Buffalo" Vernon — a different person — the cited source terms the notion "ridiculous."
