Researchers are welcome to use the Museum’s various historical resources including abundant information on railroad history along with local history source materials such as newspapers, cemetery records, genealogies, biographies, and other records.
It is my goal for our young visitors to not only understand what a historian does, but also to think of themselves as historians - which they are!"
