While your visiting stop and snap a selfie, or a group shot, with our C&O conductor! The picture below features our AFNHA AmeriCorps Service Member!
The WVRRM is officially open for the 2019 Season!
Join us today (4/27) for the Grand Opening of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Exhibit. This year we are happy to debut two new activities to better engage with our exhibit. The first is an Activity Packet for kids. They can follow Chessie’s paw prints to find interesting facts, fill out a C&O crossword, and color!
The second activity is the AFNHA Heritage Site Passport. You can become a History Hunter by visiting 6 local museums. Find the answer on each location’s page, get it signed by the front desk, and you get a History Hunter button! We are excited for the opportunity to kick off this new program that helps our visitors explore the many facets of Appalachian heritage!
Is there another perk to visiting the WVRRM? Yes! You can take home a WVRRM 2019 souvenir card that you get to stamp with an official C&O Company Seal!
We look forward to meeting you this summer!
REMINDER: Our hours have changed slightly. We will now be closing at 5pm.
Although the weather would have us think otherwise, October is here! We hope everyone that came out for the Mountain State Forest Festival had a great time exploring Elkins.

If you haven’t gotten to check out our exhibit The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad: West Virginia’s First Railway, there are only three weeks left before we close for the winter! We open in April 2019 with a brand new exhibit.
This Wednesday three of our volunteers had the great pleasure of visiting The Chesapeake and Ohio Historical Society in Clifton Forge, Va. It was great time getting to see the Archives and Museum and getting to know our new friends. WVRRM is very excited to work with COHS on our 2019 Exhibit. To learn more about COHS you can visit their website. (cohs.org).
For the 2018 season, we are happy to present an exhibit on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in West Virginia! Come visit us to see a display of photos, artifacts, and more on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
