Save the Depot

Help Save the Charles City Milwaukee Road Depot! The American Passenger Train History Museum is in the midst of moving the depot to our property this year. Our community has done wonders in raising the initial funding needed to save the depot! Please find us on Facebook @APTHMCharlesCity to see regular updates on the project. You may also check out our website at www.apthm.com and stay up to date on our latest news.

Due to having to find a new contractor to build the foundation for the building on the museum's grounds, we have had to take on additional costs. We are looking to raise an additional $10,000 to help cover the cost of the new contractor and the expediting of work to keep this project as close to schedule as possible.

If you would like to help save this historic piece of rural America; please consider donating. If you would like to donate directly to the museum, please mail us a check to PO Box 683, Charles City, IA 50616 and include in the memo the ‘Save the Depot’ fund. Thank you all for your amazing generosity!
