A bit about us

The Wabash Railroad Historical Society is a registered not-for-profit, IRS tax-exempt organization, incorporated in the State of Missouri.

Our Mission is three-fold:

  • To preserve the historical materials of railway transportation regarding the former Wabash Railroad Company, its predecessors & affiliates — including the Ann Arbor and Manistique and Lake Superior Railroad Companies (until 1963), the New Jersey, Indiana and Illinois Railroad Company, and the Lake Erie and Ft. Wayne Railroad Company, and successors;
  • To collect data on the history and operation of the Wabash Railroad Company and to issue publications relating to this subject; and
  • To maintain an association of persons interested in the former Wabash Railroad.                                                                                            
The WRHS was established in 1975 and incorporated in the State of Missouri in 1989.
