Last year we had a very successful exhibit featuring the history of the Cape Charles Rosenwald School. When we re-open, we will have a new exhibit featuring ...
We recently acquired a diesel locomotive and various freight cars to add to our display, as well as the pilot house from a railroad barge.
Our locomotive and freight cars were donated to the museum at the closure of the Cape Charles rail yard. Moving them to our site strained our finances in 2019, and now we have to begin their restoration. Meanwhile, we receive, archive and display many artifacts related to the history of Cape Charles, as well as maintain an extensive library of historical photographs. Please consider a donation to help us continue to preserve the history of this historic Eastern Shore town..
