Heyworth Railroad Museum

P.O. Box 439
Heyworth, Illinois 61745

The Heyworth Railroad Museum is a nonprofit organization created to preserve the history of railroading in Central Illinois.

Heyworth Station

 The Heyworth Railroad Museum organization intends to put Heyworth back on track to celebrate and share its railroad history with railroad enthusiasts everywhere!  

Our Mission:

  • To collect, preserve, and exhibit equipment, artifacts, paper records, books, artwork and photographs from the railroad industry for public access.
  • To present a unique railroad attraction with engaging exhibits and special events to the widest possible audience.
  • To integrate railroad museum activities with appropriate disciplines, railroad enthusiast organizations, and the larger museum communities.
  • To develop outreach programs.
  • To pursue administrative and financial management to ensure short- and long-term survival and growth.

Pulling Together

The Heyworth Railroad Museum needs financial support and many more volunteers to make this project a reality.  Our goal is to purchase a caboose and railcar in good condition that will house railroad memorabilia and historical information. This will require financial support through contributions and membership. Many contributions have already been received, but more will definitely be needed.

Individuals are also needed to volunteer their time and talents to museum projects. A project like this will depend almost completely on community member volunteers to create, maintain and present this museum to the public.
