The Midland Railway was originally constructed in 1867, making it the first railroad south of the Kansas River. Today the train travels through woods and farmlands and over a 200-foot-long bridge, using early 1900s coaches.

The 1906 brick and stone Santa Fe Depot was visited by presidents William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt. Its architectural features include triple arched windows, a coal fireplace and a sub-floor water cooler. Trains depart on weekends.
