A bit about us

The Wabash Railroad Historical Society is a registered not-for-profit, IRS tax-exempt organization which is dedicated to the collection and preservation of historical artifacts, data, photos and drawings on the history, operation and equipment of the Wabash Railroad Company, its predecessors and 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.
The WRHS was established in 1975 and incorporated in the state of Missouri in 1989.

The Society owns two genuine Wabash cabooses, #2824 and #2834, which reside at the Monticello Railway Museum in Illinois. Work-sessions are regularly scheduled every April in order to keep the cabooses maintained in operating condition.

More information about us, including what you can expect from an annual membership, can be found by clicking "About WRHS" on the navigation bar.

If you wish to make a donation of historical Wabash artifacts, please feel free to contact any board member.
