From This Site:
The first train order was transmitted by telegraph in 1851 from Harriman to Goshen by order of Charles Minot of the Erie Railroad

About Charles Minot:
Charles Minot (August 30, 1810 - December 10, 1866) was an American railroad executive at the Erie Railroad, where in 1850 he became Superintendent as successor of James P. Kirkwood, and was succeeded by Daniel McCallum in 1854. After the bankruptcy of the Erie in 1859 he was reinstated as general superintendent of the Erie railroad. - wikipedia

The nearby memorial has since gone into major neglect and the remaining message on it is almost poetic. Visit this site for more on the monument: http://www.telegraph-history.org/charles-minot/
