Join us to see photos and artifacts reminding of a time when railroading was the most important means of shipping and travel. Learn about Keller’s train history – indeed the reason the town was created.   Visit the restored Interurban Wait Station and learn how the North Texas Interurban trains served the many small towns from Sherman to Cleburne.  See model trains on display.  See an authentic work trailer and its speeder ready for rail repair.  Consider the fun of joining a group of train enthusiasts.

See how times have changed – discover the charm and beauty of linens and other handwork on display.  Consider the arts of tatting, quilting, crochet, and more.  See a 1940s wooden floor loom in action – and even take a seat and give weaving a try.

… and be sure to visit the Wild Rose Heritage Center right across the street to find out even more about Keller’s history.
