Open house dates will be May 17, June 21, July 19, August 16, September 20, and October 18. Hours will be 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. A large collection of historical artifacts from the Lehigh Valley Railroad is on display at the museum. We will be inviting rail historians to give presentations at some of the open houses. Watch our website for details in the coming months. Admission is free; donations are welcome.

Membership Drive Underway

The Lehigh Valley Railroad Historical Society is actively seeking new members for our group. The membership brochure was reprinted in the fall and is being distributed at hobby shops, museums, and train shows throughout Western and Central New York State. We need your help to recruit new members by handing out more brochures. Please stop by the station in Shortsville when it is open and pick up some brochures. Also, don't forget to renew your membership when the notices are mailed out later this year. Thank you for your support of the membership drive.
