ARIZONA STATE RAILROAD MUSEUM

 AN INVESTMENT IN ARIZONA’S PAST…AND ITS FUTURE

 The Museum is a Centennial 2012 Legacy Project and will serve as an invaluable resource for celebrating and preserving our state’s unique heritage.  The Atlantic and Pacific, Santa Fe Pacific, Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, Grand Canyon and Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroads have all contributed to the historical legacy of Northern Arizona.  So, too, have the Fred Harvey Company, ranchers, loggers, miners, legions of tourists, and others who worked and traveled these lines.  The Arizona State Railroad Museum will bring all of these fascinating stories to life in rich detail.

Slated for a beautiful 16 acre park in Williams, Arizona, the 100,00-square foot museum will reflect the atmosphere of railroad engine houses and shops.  Exhibits, archives, an art gallery, meeting rooms, interactive computer facilities, a 500-seat auditorium, and an outdoor amphitheater will provide incredible opportunities for learning and discovery. Potential displays will include a variety of steam and diesel locomotives; interpretive displays of railroad uses by ranching, mining, logging, passengers, freight, tourism, and tract construction;  art exhibits, emphasizing railroad and National Park advertising art; Fred Harvey Company history and artifacts; and a variety of traveling exhibits.
