This little museum was FULL of history. The sweet woman that works there was so friendly and offered tons of information. The facility was well cared for, very clean and had tidy bathrooms also. Great quick stop for the family.

This train depot is so well restored and chocked with historic relics. It is a reminder of the times gone by when rail travel was supreme. Small towns are great at preserving history and architecture. Stop if you are driving by.

A restored train depot containing a large collection of railroad items from the steam engine era. The collection is constantly growing and the building is a well preserved example of an original train depot.
