HISTORICAL RAILROAD ARTIFACTS & MEMORABILIA

In the past two years, the all-volunteer staff at the museum have elevated the museum and its displays to new heights. The museum is now arranged to "tell a story" with all rooms dedicated to specific topics and purposes.

The "GENERAL RAILROAD INFORMATION" room is dedicated to all those items that do not neatly fit into other areas. There is a working telegraph setup from the 1800s that allows everyone to actually send a message using Morse code.

The La Grange room is designed to tell the story of railroading in our area that is such an integral part of the community. The museum experience starts at the actual 1914 ticket window and continues clockwise around the room, One of the noteworthy items in the room is a 150-year-old train depot bench featuring a reversible backrest.

The "INTERURBAN ROOM" surprises so many with all the details of the electric trolley that operated all the way from Louisville.

Finally the 'STEAM ROOM" tells the story of the age of steam.
