The basics

Considered the birthplace of American railroading, the site (now a museum) is where the first commercial long-distance track was laid and the first passenger station was built. The country’s first passenger train service rolled out of the roundhouse in 1830. On a visit, see its comprehensive Civil War railroad exhibit and enjoy family-friendly interactive exhibits and activities, as well as seasonal train rides (fee). Daily tours of the historic buildings and train platforms are available.
