Rail City Historical Museum

162 Stanley Drive
Sandy Creek, NY 13145

The Rail City Historical Museum was permanently closed in 2015.  Prior to closing it housed a static display of thousands of steam-era railroad photographs and memorabilia from a multitude of railroads as well as the complete history of Rail City Museum during its construction and operation from 1952 to 1974. The museum was located in the former New York Central Railroad station from Deer River, NY. Built in 1873, it was one of many original railroad structures dismantled and reconstructed by Dr. Groman at the site of Rail City Museum. After 21 years of neglect following the closing of Rail City Museum in 1974, the former Deer River Station was renovated in 1995 and re-opened as the Rail City Historical Museum in 1997.

For three years (1997, 1998 & 1999) the Rail City Historical Museum had routine hours of operation from Memorial Day to mid-October of each year.  From 2000 to 2015 the museum was open by appointment during the same period.  In 2015 we elected to close the museum for good and the Deer River Station shell structure was sold.
