Northern Minnesota Railroad Heritage Association has found a new home!! The new location is 36184 County Road 66, Crosslake, MN. We are moving into the lower level of a retail building. The building is across the street from Zorba’s Pizza.

We are in the process of tearing down everything in the old building and putting the saveable items in storage.
At the same time, we are remodeling the new location to be ready to accept the O gauge layout and the G scale layout. The work on the HO layout is delayed by further renovation.
The members are hard at work!!!

We will keep you updated on our progress.

The Northern Minnesota Railroad Heritage Association and its members are dedicated to discovering, preserving and presenting the heritage of the railroad industry in northern Minnesota.
