The sign reads:
Orphan - Raised at Trailside

"Due to years of unregulated trapping, the Beaver virtually disappeared from the United States. Reintroduced into this region in 1920 when 3 pairs were released in the park. Now very common.The beaver is the largest of North American rodents, weighing as much as 70 lbs. In addition to its large chisel-like teeth, it has webbed hind feet for swimming. The flat tail is also used for swimming, a rudder, and to slap the water surface when alarmed. Usually 4-5 kits are born well-furred with eyes open, in late spring or summer. Able to swim almost immediately. Feeds to a large extent on the bark of aspen, willow, birch, and maple. Aquatic plants are also part of its diet."

Click to enlarge photo of Suffern Railroad Museum "The Suffern Railroad Museum was organized in 1998 as a way to showcase the rich history Suffern had forged with the Erie Railroad. Housed in the former Wells Fargo Express Building the Museum has become a depository for documents and objects that relate to the railroad and Hudson Valley.

"The NY and Erie Railroad operated the first train into Suffern in 1841. The train line went between Piermont on the Hudson River to Dunkirk on Lake Erie. It was completed in 1851 and at that time it was the longest railroad in the U.S. at 483 miles." Source: Suffern Train Museum.
