DeQuincy Railroad Museum
Officers of the DeQuincy Railroad Museum were recently re-elected. They are, from left: Evalin Hester, treasurer; Carla Robertson, vice-president; Jolene Constance, secretary, and Gary Cooper, president.
The DeQuincy Railroad Museum housed in the 1923 Kansas City Southern Railroad Depot is DeQuincy’s most recognizable historic building. The museum was established in 1974 and its mission is to acquire, preserve, and display railroad artifacts of a bygone era and to heighten public awareness of the role of the railroad industry to DeQuincy’s history and also the region and state as well.
The museum can now be found online through their new facebook page. The website for the museum has also been recently updated with new photos and links.
There is a gift shop in the main lobby and facilities available to rent for various functions.
