If you want to see this museum, you need to walk across the tracks to Old Fort Town Hall. There is a real estate company occupying the building. They will let you inside, if they are open and working.

It was closed when we were there. There is one old caboose on site that you can walk through if you like.

Another interesting little museum in Old Fort complete with a retired caboose for you to explore. Experience the history of Old Fort's railroad with local lady to answer all your questions and tell you some of the most fascinating stories.
