  • Had to stop by and see this historic place as it is near to the National Frontier Museum which was also closed. This only means we will have to return again someday.

  • Very neat and well preserved piece of History. A great museum for history buffs and train lovers alike. 👍 Bring cash for the gift shop.
  • Great little railroad museum right next to the tracks. Lots of little gems to looks at from the old RR days. Place has been restored and has the upstairs living quaters to walk through as well. Super cute and some really cool stuff to look at if you're into railroad memorabilia.
