Dennison Railroad Depot Museum

Join us and walk in the footsteps of American heroes.  The Dennison Railroad Depot Museum is housed in Dennison, Ohio's 1873 Pennsylvania Railroad Station - once located at the water stop halfway between Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, OH.  On the National Defense Railway, the Depot was the location of a WII Servicemen's Canteen that served 1.3 million soldiers and earned the nickname "Dreamsville, USA."  Today, the Depot is a National Historic Landmark recognized as the best example left in the country of a WWII Homefront Canteen.  Come back to America's Homefront and visit the Museum, enjoy a delicious meal in the Over the Rail Diner, pick up great souvenirs in the Whistle Stop Railway Shoppe and hop aboard one of our Fall Foliage one hour trips or Polar Express trips.  The Museum features exhibits throughout the Depot including a large model train display showing the Dennson Railroad yard at their peak, and a train wing of railraod cars attached to the Museum that house an Interactive Children's Experience Car, rare WWII Hospital Car, Special Exhibit car and more. Children are invited to do Bing's Scavenger Hunt named after Dennison's WWI Mascot Private Bulldog Bing.  For more information, call 740.922.6776.
