Cowan Railroad Museum

The Cowan Railroad Museum was a lot of fun! It is a small museum, but has lots of artifacts that you can touch and a really cool model train where you can go underneath and look up into a plastic bubble. There are also a lot of old pictures of the train station, and everything that went with it like old maps, records books and supplies. The pictures were well maintained and it was pretty cool to look at pictures of the very building you are standing in.

The town of Cowan is also very nice. It was especially beautiful as we visited in the fall, and the colors of the leaves and the rolling hills made a great back drop to the museum. There were several restaurants near the museum, which is located in the heart of the main street running through town.

Of course, the best part was being able to get on the old train outside. There is a steam engine, platform, box car and caboose.

I could definitely see this becoming something we do again. Next time, I'd like to walk downtown and visit the various souvenir shops, restaurants and shops.
