Look to the back for more parking....I had just pulled in....and got some really dirty looks from someone thinking i wanted to take the parking place she wanted....we simply drove to the backside near other buildings and found ample parking. The place looked interesting and seemed like it had a real story to tell. Might have to go back when... More

We saw the signs for the southern buffer and stopped for lunch. The food was really good and reasonably priced. I especially liked the pulled pork and bannana pudding. The Casey Jones museum was interesting as was the Pullman car.

One of the greatest Southern Cooking establishments anywhere. One of the best times of day to stop for the Buffett is around 10am. You will be able to get breakfast and then stay for lunch as they switch out the items. The skillet fried chicken is amazing. Large plethora of entrees, fresh veggies and breads with homemade soups. Try milling... More

Arrived late so museum closed, shoppe still open & restaurant looked so enticing we decided why not give it a go for dinner & glad we did (although I've certainly eaten WAY to much). Great selection of cold & hot food for our buffet dinner, no labels on the actual dishes, so as it would be rude not to -... More

I grew up hearing the story about Casey Jones. This is a very nice museum with a lot of great train memorabilia.

Love the old timey cars and trains. If you're at the store next door, do see the museum. Local history, rail history, and stuff for kiddos.

What an interesting place – a whole myth has grown around the first recorded ‘boy racer’ but this one was not in charge of a car but a train full of people! He saved a train full of people but killed himself because he was driving far too fast – the museum shattered my illusion of this train driver who... More

We always though Casey jones was a fictional character! How wrong could we be. This museum was set up brilliantly with the engine, house, museum and shop, all very interesting. Spend a couple of hours here and ate in the restaurant which was very authentic, food was great!
