Pennsylvania, Ligonier - Ligonier Valley Rail Road Museum

Ligonier, PA - The Ligonier Valley Rail Road Museum is located 3 miles west of Ligonier, Pennsylvania and is housed in an original Ligonier Valley Rail Road station that was built around 1896. The Ligonier Valley Rail Road Association acquired the property in 2005 Darlington Station 1934 and raised funding to restore the station. The project took about 2 years and it was opened as the Ligonier Valley Rail Road Museum on May 21, 2010. The photo on the left shows the station in 1935. Darlington Station 2008The photo on the right shows the station as it is today as the Ligonier valley Rail road Museum.

The mission of the museum is to preserve the history of the Ligonier Valley Rail Road. The Railroad was founded by Judge Thomas Mellon and began passenger operation on December 1, 1877 and during the course of its 75 years of operation it carried 9 million passengers and hauled 32 million tons of freight. The last run occurred on August 31, 1952.

The Museum collection includes over 3,000 items. The Museum itself houses a variety of items including lanterns, locks and keys, PRR and B&O dinnerware, and a wall map of the right of way of the LVRR. We also have a small HO gauge model RR as well as videos relating to the LVRR and other railroads.
