On August 29 at 7:30 the Friends of Matthias Baldwin Park are hosting a free movie screening. The feature for the first Movie Night at Matthias Baldwin Park is Hugo, a 2011 film based on Brian Selznick's 2007 book The Invention of Hugo Cabret. When the Friends of Matthias Baldwin Park group were debating which movie to show for our first movie night (hopefully an annual event!), someone suggested Hugo because it was about trains, an obvious connection to our Park.
Baldwin Locomotive Works at Broad and Spring Garden Streets around 1900. The factory buildings extended to 18th and Hamilton.
