The Rockdale I&GN Depot Museum is located in downtown Rockdale (11 N. MAIN ST.)in the recently restored former International & Great Northern Passenger Train Depot.

Dedicated to the preservation of our railroad and local history, the museum currently houses a collection of railroad and other artifacts relating to the early history of Rockdale and the surrounding areas. In addition to the fully restored passenger depot, the site has on display a Missouri-Pacific dining car, the 36 "Cheyenne Mountain", and a restored Missouri-Pacific (StLB&M) caboose. The site also includes an operating model railroad in O and HO scales, and an operational early-day blacksmith shop. For more information about the depot restoration project, see ROCKDALE I&GN DEPOT
