Washington - Northern Pacific Railway Museum
Yakima, WA - History: The old 1911 Northern Pacific Railway depot in Toppenish, Washington has been reopened as the Northern Pacific Railway Museum. This depot was closed in 1981 and was boarded up for nearly 10 years before the formation of the Yakima Valley Rail and Steam Museum Association (YVR&S) in 1989. The attempt is being made to recreate the ambience of the 1930 Northern Pacific Railroad. The depot has been restored to its early appearance and gives an opportunity for the visitor to view many aspects of early railroad transportation.

Washington - Tenino Depot Museum
Tenino, WA - The sandstone building housing the museum was built in 1914 as a Northern Pacific depot and was active until after WW II. On the main line between Seattle and Portland, eight or nine trains daily stopped here at the height of train travel. In 1965, NP sold it to the town and with the help of a Federal grant, it was moved ten blocks to a city park and converted to a museum.

The building was kept the same as much as possible and now houses the original press used to make the original wood money, along with old logging tools, old quarry tools, railroad memorabilia and many local artifacts, including a 1920s doctor's office.
