Good Things to See & Hear
Travel Town is an outdoor museum full of real locomotives, freight cars, cabooses and passenger cars dating from the late 1800’s. Children can walk right up to the huge trains and touch the wheels and cow catchers. All of the trains have been recently renovated, and access has been made safe for children. There is also an HO gage model railroad (open weekends) and a children’s train to ride.

Watching the children’s train go by is almost as much fun as riding it - take a picnic, sit in the grassy area and watch it go by many times.
