Come and visit the Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum
Located next to Casey Jones's historic home, our Railroad Museum contains many exhibits dedicated to Casey's life and heroic last ride. Enjoy a short film about the story of Casey Jones, a walk through Casey Jones’ historic home, and pictures with our 35-ton locomotive, our version of Casey’s engine 382. Kids of all ages are welcome to climb aboard and ring the bell just like Casey. Civil War enthusiasts will enjoy our permanent exhibit entitled "The Railroads & The Civil War In Tennessee." We are also proud to have the Jackson Room: a room dedicated to our town's rich railroad history that is also available to rent for birthday parties, baby showers and more!

Want to learn about a real life hero? You will not be disappointed as you watch an 8 minute video explaining this well known folk hero's story, such as who he was and why we are still talking about him 125 years later.
Many artifacts can be found in these halls, including things that you would find along the railway and even some of the Jones' family possessions,such as the very pocketwatch Casey Jones wore the night of his fateful ride.
Whether you imagine the sounds of children running and laughing through the halls or seeing the family in the parlor enjoying their time together, this marvelous piece of history will take you back in time to show how this family lived during Casey's time as an engineer in the late 1800s.
During your visit, you will have the opportunity to explore the levers and knobs on the replica 382 engine. And of course, you don’t want to miss ringing the bell of a glorious age long past.
If you are a train enthusiast, have children who love trains or are even just passing by, this is the place for you! We provide information about the beautiful state of Tennessee and what we have to offer as well as toys, souvenirs and other novelty items to remind you of your visit with us.
