Railroad Museum opening new business office | News, Sports, Jobs

ELKINS – The West Virginia Railroad Museum is not moving, but it is opening a new office space in downtown Elkins.

“We actually leased a new office space, and it’s just for our business office and for storage,” Carrie Perry, the museum’s executive director, told The Inter-Mountain Wednesday. “It is in a separate space from the museum.”

The museum is located on the second floor of the Darden Mill in Elkins, on the corner of First Street and Railroad Avenue.

The new office is located at 101 Davis Avenue, in the space which for decades housed the Office Products business, which closed recently.

“We just moved the location of our office,” Perry said. “We’re going through archives, trying to get organized and put our archives into a new computer system for museums specifically. Hopefully, we’ll be able to share some of our archives, eventually.”

The museum will open for the 2024 season at the end of April.

“Our members meeting will be April 27, and our official opening to the public will be after that,” Perry said. “We’re gearing up, we’re getting ready to go.”

The West Virginia Railroad Museum is dedicated to displaying, interpreting, collecting and restoring aspects of West Virginia’s railroading history.

It frequently hosts exhibits and educational presentations that are open to the public.
