The Restored Burlington Northern Depot
& WWII Memorial Museum

In 1903 when the Burlington Northern Depot was first completed, it was a model of modern convenience linking Red Oak to more urban communities in worlds totally different from life here on the prairie.  Rural communities were virtually inaccessible by any method of transportation until lifelines
of railroads joined them to more metropolitan societies. 
Rededicated on December 20, 2003, on the 100th anniversary of the first dedication, The Restored Burlington Northern Depot now houses a
WWII Memorial Museum with docent & self-guided tours, and an
orientation auditorium with a rear projection viewing screen.

Also, a reading room containing books, periodicals, magazines,
images, and related information about World War II.  
And, documents relating to railroads in Iowa and the region. 

Facilities for meetings, including catering, are available. 
OPEN Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday,
10 am to 12 noon
(every January and February, open by appointment only)
OPEN by appointment, any day and time.

No admission fee
