The little river Railroad museum is a great piece of preservation effort. Even though it was closed you can still view the old steam engine and old log loader. Each item has a informational sign that tells the story behind each item. Very interesting piece of local history.

A must see if you are a history buff! Not only do you see train related things but also the incredible history of the area. The woman that was working that day was a font of information. We are so glad we stopped!

I had noticed the signs for the museum and I wanted to take my grandson as he loves everything trains. He loved it! It is a small museum, run by volunteers who are extremely nice and knowledgeable about the history. We will definitely go back!
