Temple Railroad And Heritage Museum

Temple Railroad And Heritage Museum

The Railroad and Heritage Museum was founded in 1973 to collect, preserve and exhibit the history of the railroads and local history of Central Texas. The current home of the Museum is this beautifully restored depot. A current exhibit, The Communication Room, chronicles all aspects of historical railway communication. An operational telegraph exhibit is location along the north wall. On special occasions, retired operators demonstrate their skill by sending "orders" over the telegraph "line."

We hope you enjoy our work.
