Missouri Pacific Railroad Depot - Waterville, Kansas
The Waterville Railroad Depot Museum occupies an 1870 Missouri Pacific Railroad Depot in Waterville, Kansas. It was moved one block north to its present location in 1982. The modest museum does not maintain regular hours, but volunteers are happy to schedule an appointment to show you through the museum. We found ourselves in town on a Sunday morning, contacted the number, and a volunteer (Ann Walter) met us about 30 minutes later.
There are several other interesting structures nearby, which our guide showed us as well. The Opera House, Caboose Museum and Weaver Hotel are each interesting in their own right.
New since we visited the museum, the adjacent Central Branch Railroad (CBRR) can be scheduled for rides April-October. The rides can be various distances and take from 40 minutes to 2 hours. There is a charge for rides.
