The history and excitement that you can experience on a train is something we have forgotten in the age of fast airplane rides to the destinations we are traveling to. There is something about trains that bring up the excitement of a different period in history. Trains are used for so many things in this country and learning the history and how they have changed over the last 100 years.

The 23rd Annual Heritage Railway Festival is a family-friendly celebration of railroad history. It will feature train memorabilia, live music, and many specialty vendors.
