The Historic Rail Park Museum is very proud of the accomplishments that have taken place in the restoration of the Bowling Green L&N Depot.

We would like to share the history of the L&N railroad with you. The L&N provided essential services and jobs to so many and had a major economic and cultural impact on our country.

Enclosed please find information that can assist you in preparing your lesson plans and your students for a field trip to the museum. We have provided an overview and other materials for your use so that students can benefit academically and culturally from their visit.

Also ask us how we can bring the classroom to you with one of our Traveling Trunks. Schedule a member of our Education Committee to help bring your lessons alive with our Traveling Trunks (also available for teacher loan).
