This National Historic Landmark celebrates the Central Georgia Railroad & Canal Company, which was chartered in 1833 and became what was at that time the longest continuous railroad in the world. This former railroad-repair facility lay derelict for years, until 1989, when the city took ownership and transformed the buildings into this beautiful, hands-on museum. There are several intact examples of historic rolling stock on display, as well as tours of carriages and a steam train to ride. The museum gives an interesting context to the commercial developments that shaped Savannah’s history so immensely.
