On the road again…

We are excited to be a part of the Boone Rotary Club’s Welcome Train Centennial Project! Over the next few days, the steam locomotive and tender which have been on display just northeast of our depot, along with a coach car, will be moved to a new site at the intersection of South Story Street and Highway 30 on the south edge of Boone. This display will welcome visitors to the city, and serve as a reminder of our community’s strong railroad heritage dating back 155 years to 1865 when the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad platted it.
