Visitors to the Center will encounter a number of century-old railroad buildings constructed during Flager's reign, a swell as a steam locomotive dating from 1911. The historic Pablo Beach post office is likewise open for exploration. Inside the Museum are a number of traveling exhibits, the "Shore Stories" permanent exhibit, and an archives reading room.
