Search Toppenish Washington

Built in 1911, this "old depot" was the third one built in the same general area of Toppenish by the Northern Pacific Railroad. The Burlington Northern Railway abandoned the depot in 1982, but volunteers converted it to a museum starting in 1991.

The Railway Express Agency's office was converted to a gift shop, which features items for railroad enthusiasts and children of all ages. The Northern Pacific Railway Museum Association also runs the The Toppenish, Simcoe & Western Railroad.

This is just one of the many Historical Museums located throughout Washington.
