About Roundhouse Railroad Museum:
The story of the Roundhouse Railroad Museum is the story of industry and how it shaped Savannah and Georgia. When the complex was begun in the 1830s as the Central of Georgia Railway headquarters and repair shops, its design was revolutionary, combining all the railroad's cutting-edge facilities in one place.
The buildings fell into disuse after the Central of Georgia was merged with Southern Railway in the mid-twentieth century, and the site was abandoned by the early 1960s. A group of twelve heroic Savannahians saved the complex from demolition later that decade, and the City of Savannah invested millions in stabilizing the buildings. Now the nonprofit Coastal Heritage Society is preserving and interpreting these amazing structures for today's visitors. The site is now a National historic Landmark, a "Save America's Treasures" Site, and Georgia's State Railroad Museum.
More than 40,000 visitors each year stroll through exhibits inside seven historic railroad structures and see our growing collection of locomotives and rolling stock. Our interpretive displays include a large model train layout of Savannah as well as exhibits explaining steam engines and belt-driven machinery. We have also restored the massive operating turntable in the middle of the Roundhouse.
