North Carolina - the National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame, Inc.

Hamlet, NC - The National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame, Inc. was officially opened in 1976. The purpose of the museum is to create that time when railroads were the main source of long distance travel and passenger train service was at its zenith. Only by recapturing this past can we truly realize how far we've come since that time. In fact, at a time when artifacts of earlier eras should be treasured and preserved, we see them fast disappearing in our quest for more technological advances. It is more important ever to become aware of our beginnings so we can better understand the present and chart more surely our future course.

The museum provides a source of entertainment as well as a place for learning about the history of railroading, the history of Hamlet and the history of Richmond County. A must-see spot for railroad buffs, historians, students, out-of-towners and local residents. Visitors are guaranteed to leave with a new outlook on trains and a deeper understanding of the history that surrounds them.
