Railfest Month

The Railfest committee received one of the highest honors around Monday evening at the Plant City City Commission Meeting when Mayor Rick Lott proclaimed April 2018 will officially be known as Railfest Month. 

Lott said the railroad has been a part of Plant City life since the 1880s and played a key role in shaping the town. The Union Station Depot became an active passenger train stop in 1909 and was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1975. 

Because of all of the work the museum does for the community and due to the magnitude of the annual event he encouraged all citizens and visitors to attend Railfest and stop by the depot and viewing platform.
