North Carolina - Southeastern Narrow Gauge & Shortline Museum

Newton, NC - The railroad heritage of the southern United States is extremely rich and firmly rooted in our regionís business and personal identity. Known for its production of agriculture, textiles, timber, and furniture, our industrial legacy was built upon a backbone of steel rails and wooden ties. From the 1830's until the present day, these lines provided a critical path for passengers, freight, and materials required for commerce. Along these rails are also scattered memories- loved ones embarking upon a new adventure, the soldier hero returning from war, or perhaps a simple visit with favorite cousins.

As a tribute to this history, the Newton (NC) Depot Authority is establishing the Southeastern Narrow Gauge & Shortline Museum. This museum will house a collection of vintage railroad equipment that dates as far back as the era of Reconstruction, days when primitive iron rails endeavored to connect the cotton fields of lowland farms to the vast timber interests of the Appalachians.

Join us on this journey, as we endeavor to create a museum, a living testimony unlike none other east of the Mississippi River and south of the Mason-Dixon.
