HISTORY OF THE MUSEUM
Incorporated in October of 1977 by a group of dedicated, visionary volunteers, the Railroad Museum of Oklahoma established permanent residence in the old Santa Fe freight warehouse north of downtown Enid. Officially opening its doors to the public on April 27, 1989 just across the street to the west of the Santa Fe passenger depot, the freight building was in sad shape when these railroad
enthusiasts tackled its renovation starting in the late 1980's. Many months and hundreds of man-hours later, the building and its interior began resembling a museum and the rail yard began to take shape.
On December 8th, 2015 the Museum and property was placed on the Federal Governments National Registry of Historical Places worthy of preservation.
