The West River Railroad Museum

Interested in a little history about the West River Railroad? The beautifully restored Railroad Station in Newfane, Vermont will soon be opening for the summer season. The West River Railroad Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts, manuscripts, photographs and documents on exhibit.

The Historical Society of Windham County announced the Grand Opening of the West River Railroad Museum in October, 2017. Since the purchase of the Station in 2014, The Windham County Historical Society has been restoring the Depot Building and its associated Water Tank House in Newfane, Vermont. Click HERE for the BCTV (Brattleboro Community TV) video of the grand opening.

The Museum of the Historical Society of Windham County is on the east side of Route 30 in the Historic Village of Newfane, diagonally across from the County Courthouse and the Newfane Common. The Museum is open from Memorial Day weekend in May through Columbus Day weekend in October, and is located on the main street (Rt.30) in Newfane, VT. For hours and information click HERE.
