Hilton Hojack Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Hilton and Hamlin grew as agricultural communities. They prospered with the building of the Lake Ontario Shore Railroad, better known as the Hojack Railroad, in 1876. Agricultural products shifted from grain to fruits now that a quick, easy method was at hand to get their products to market. As with many of our area railroads, the Hojack Railroad business was shifted to trucks on interstate highways and ceased operation in the late 1970s. At the time of its demise, this rail line was part of the Penn Central System."
