Montague Railroad Depot Museum
The museum contains many fascinating displays and unique artifacts. Rare photographs illumine the history of Montague and Siskiyou County. Out behind the main museum is the Annex, which contains several fascinating items as well, including the original curtain from the Opera House Theater.
The main depot building is an extraordinary historic structure. It was built in five weeks in 1887, the same year that the town of Montague itself was laid out. The depot is all redwood, including the shingles. In 1976, it was moved from its original location by the railroad tracks to its current spot.
Upstairs in the museum are the restored Station Master’s living quarters. Travel back to another century and marvel at the similarities and differences between that world and this one.
Special tours are available for groups or individuals.
Hours: Friday – Saturday, 11am – 2pm
