Western Mining & Railroad Museum Presents The Power of Rail - A Journey into the History of Helper
Please note, this event has expired.
The Western Mining & Railroad Museum proudly presents an exhibit developed in conjunction with local area schools highlighting the history of rail in Helper City.
Helper, whose very name is derived from helper engines used to pull coal trains up Solider Summit, is a natural fit for the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad. Our focus is to leverage this key, historic event and combine it into a year long study of our railroading history with our local area schools. The year will end with the Western Mining and Railroad Museum hosting the opening of “The Power of Rail – A Journey into the History of Helper.” This winningView more
