Word of mouth led me to treat the family to a visit to this Historical Society and Railroad Museum. The well preserved 1907 train Depot that serves as the museum was clean and well lit.

We took in the RR museum to see my friend's painting which he donated several years ago and sure enough - there it was. A nice picture of the depot. Mr Moody gave us the tour and we enjoyed his stories very much. We WILL be back!

Great little museum. It doesn't take long to get through it, but it's worth the trip. It's conveniently located by the ballpark.

My son loved the trains. He got to go up and look in. We have plenty of pictures of him and my husband next to the trains. he was in awe. When we were there they were having music in the park so it was a double treat.

Nice vintage engine and cars with more historical information in the old station. Gorham was a major RR stop in the heyday of rail travel. Great place for kids, with a playground right across the street.

It was very neat to see all the different types of vehicles they've used to go up Mt. Washington! The museum was right next to the lodge and gift shop.
