440 North Mill Street, Currie Minnesota 56123
A model railroad display, in HO scale, is one of the highlights of the museum. This display is an authentic reproduction of the Currie railroad yards as they were around the Turn of the Century. The layout features scratch-built locomotives and structures, complete landscaping, a full wrap-around mural, complete sound effects and more. District Number One, the Sunrise School, was moved to End-O-Line Park and restored by the Murray County Historical Society. The embossed tin ceilings and walls, vertical wainscoting, recitation bench and many blackboards are typical, but the triangular sunrise worked into the front and back of the schoolhouse are unique. End-O-Line Parks section house, originally located in Comfrey, MN, was built by Chicago and Northwestern for a section foreman and his family. This saltbox structure has been restored to the early 1900 style. The site also features a typical settlement general store that includes a post office and bank.
