Nostalgia buffs will enjoy reading about Benson's Wild Animal Farm and Circus, which was founded in the 1920s by John T. Benson, an Englishman and dealer in exotic animals. On a Sunday, parents and eager children would travel on the Jungle Train from Boston to visit the farm. The train ride and admission to the farm were covered by a combination ticket. The train would be welcomed by a white robed figure sitting on a camel. Many historic photographs will bring back memories. The park, which later changed its name to the New England Playworld, closed in 1987.
