Viets, M. H., is the genial and popular official in charge of the Fitchburg depot at Eagle Bridge, and where he has come to be considered a personal landmark by reason of long tenure of position. He was born at West Pawiet, At., May 27, 1849, son of Captain H. R. Viets. While yet a boy he mastered the mysteries of telegraphy, and his first engagement was at the town of his birth. In 1869 he was appointed station agent at Eagle Bridge for the Troy and Boston Railroad. In June, 1887, when the Fitchburg Railroad bought the Troy and Hudson, and the Boston Hoosac Tunnel and Western road, he took charge of both stations. In December, 1890, he was made joint agent for the Fitchburg and Delaware and Hudson Canal Company's road. In 1875 Mr. Aiets married Miss Elsie Slade of Saratoga, and has one son, Harry, now seventeen. He holds high rank among the Masonic fraternity, and in the esteem of a wide circle of friends.
