Ten years ago, September 2007, the Historic RailPark & Train Museum officially opened the doors to the general public as a tourist attraction.
Friends of the L&N Depot formed in 2003 and began with a mission to facilitate displays and programming which would preserve and present railroad history in the context of its impact locally and nationally. This mission continues to be our focus as we grow.
Today we offer a two-story museum with exhibits and displays featuring information on the Civil War, The Great Train Chase and passenger travel. Our five restored railcars give visitors the opportunity to step back in time and see the cars as they were in their glory day.
We are amazed at the progress we have made in 10 years and we are excited for what the future holds. We invite the community to our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration & Fundraiser held at the L&N Depot on Saturday, September 9th 5pm-9pm. Enjoy an evening of memories and take look back at our accomplishments.
The evening will filled with photographs that will tell the story of the L&N Depot. Along with food, beverages, live music by BandZazzy and a silent action! Tickets are $25 per person. Four or more guest can reserve a table. For tickets, call us at 270-745-7317 or stop by and see us at 401 Kentucky Street in Downtown Bowling Green.
