By: admin | What's New | July 10, 2013
Come see the new exhibit in the Library Lobby on the Golden Age of Rail Travel, 1880 - 1950. The exhibit highlights a fabulous new donation to the collection from Steve Pattison and family of Great Northern Railway china and silver. It also includes menus and tourism promotion materials from our wonderful railroad archival collections. Visit a time when transportation was so much more civilized!
