Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum News & Event Schedule          

Museum exhibit hall renovations are underway so the bank building is currently closed but BF Tower will be open Saturday 10 AM - 4 PM April 8 through October 2017.

The Museum now has an N scale model railroad that depicts the railroad structures and trackage that were unique to Bradford during it's railroad heyday.   Another new addition is the children's learning center.

The museum is working with Exhibit Concepts and Swafford Construction on the next phase of museum development.   The Museum has received grants from CSX, Walmart, DP&L, and donations from many individuals to help fund the renovation and new exhibits.   Please visit our donations page to see how you can help support the museum: Support The Museum

The museum has received an Outstanding Achievement award for the video "The Oral History of the B F Tower Operators, Keepers of the Crossroads."  Marilyn Kosier accepted the award October 5 at the annual meeting of the Ohio Local History Alliance.  

The museum has also won an
Outstanding Achievement Award for our April 25, 2015 Abraham Lincoln program.

The museum has received a $1000 grant from the Thomas E. Dailey foundation to continue preserving Bradford's railroad heritage.
