This Museum was lovingly filled with great artifacts and lots of items donated by local citizens. We really enjoyed it. It gave us a sense of what Oakland and the area was all about back in the day!

This museum is housed in the B & O Railroad Station and presents the history of the railroad in Garrett County through artifacts. Such a gorgeous Queen Anne building! It's like taking a step into the past when entering this museum. No entrance fee..........just donations.

You can almost hear the ghosts of the past as your walk around this site. You can imagine the trains pulling in and the folks going to or coming home from work. Travelers needing rest. Oh what fun!

No train to ride, although there was one on the tracks outside. It was not accessible, though.
