A Time to Reflect: The History of Whalom Park
August 21, 2012  
Whalom Park

A modern-day, in-depth look into a disappearing piece of Americana; the classic amusement park. This documentary chronicles over 100 years of Whalom Park’s history; from prior to its inception in 1893 to its present status after closing in 2000.

Hear from a number of local residents as they remember this beloved landmark. Go back in time to the park's humble beginnings in the rustic woodlands of Lunenburg Massachusetts. See how Whalom's landscape changed throughout the years after a number of destructive storms and fires. Venture though the park during its golden years and take a ride on the Flyer Comet roller coaster, the antique Carousel, the Tumble Bug, and other classic rides.

 

A Time to Reflect: The History of Whalom Park was produced by Aaron Cadieux and distributed by Documentary Educational Resources.
