House. Comm. on Railways and Canals. Act to incorporate the Pittsfield and West Stockbridge Railroad, 1832
House No. 27 The Committee on Railways and Canals submitted An Act to incorporate the Pittsfield and West Stockbridge Rail Road Company, 1832. Four
men were incorporated as the named rail road to locate, construct, and complete the railroad from Pittsfield via Richmond to West Stockbridge, with a
capital stock of 4800 shares at $50/share. There followed the usual boilerplate language for corporations. Toll was granted, but after four years,
the Legislature might change it. No other railroad was allowed in the vicinity for thirty years and after twenty years, the state could buy the
railroad. This act passed the Senate on February 10, 1832. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
