The Bradford Railroad Museum is a group dedicated to the preservation of Bradford, Ohio's railroad heritage.  The railroad was once a significant part of Bradford's economy, employing many who manned the trains, worked in the switching yards and in the roundhouse where steam locomotives were kept and serviced between runs.

The museum has restored Bradford's former Pennsylvania Railroad BF interlocking tower and opened a museum in the former bank building.   The museum contains photos and displays that will allow the visitor to journey through Bradford's railroad history.

Mission Statement of the Museum: 

The Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum was formed in 2002 to preserve the railroad history made at the former Bradford junction. The Mission is to educate, collect, study, interpret,and exhibit significant material related to the history of the operation of the railroad in Bradford; and provide related educational services for the purpose of increasing public knowledge.  The museum is restoring the BF Tower - the only remaining stucture from the railroad operation at Bradford.  Renovation of the bank will preserve another landmark structure in Bradford and allow the museum to better exhibit its growing collection.  Please join the museum in its preservation project to keep the railroad heritage alive for future generations.
