Ontario - Palmerston Railway Heritage Museum

Palmerston, ON - Palmerston Railway Heritage Museum. The town of Palmerston has a very unique history in Southwestern Ontario. When the railways began to extend to this part of the province the vast majority of towns already existed when the railway lines were built. As a result the stations were built on the outskirts of the towns. Palmerston, however, came into existence in the 1870's with the arrival of the Wellington, Grey & Bruce Railway. Since the town was built around the railroad, the town of Palmerston has the smallest main street in Southwestern Ontario, as well as the longest Pedestrian Bridge in all of Ontario.

The museum itself is unique as we are the only Railway Museum in Wellington County. The museum has on display numerous railway and Victorian artifacts that have been kindly donated by members of the community and surrounding areas. We also host a large library of railway books which are located in our Genealogy room. The museum has numerous railway records and has begun to collect microfilm resources which can be accessed by individuals who wish to research their family history and discover ancestral ties to the railroad.
