Remnants of the railroad bed in the area of where the old sawmill may have been at the Gale River Settlement in Bethlehem, New Hampshire. From 1874-1921 a railroad traveled through this area; the railroad was first used by the Gale River Railroad. This logging railroad was in operation from 1874-1878, and it ended at the Gale River Settlement, where a sawmill was located. The Profile & Franconia Notch Railroad would then take over the line and extend it to the Profile House in Franconia Notch. In operation from 1879-1921, this passenger railroad only serviced the Profile House. The removal of historic artifacts from federal lands without a permit is a violation of federal law.
