Railroads once served Cape Cod travelers. Their story is told in Chatham's beautifully-preserved train depot.

The Chatham Railroad Museum is located in the old station on Depot Road (map). Follow Old Harbor Road north off Main Street, and Depot Street is a short distance up on the left.

The station was built in 1887 by the Chatham Railroad Company and was turned into a museum in 1960.

Among the railroading exhibits is a completely restored 1910 wooden caboose (train crew's dormitory car), used by the New York Central Railroad until that company gave it to the museum.

The museum is staffed by volunteer guides. Admission is free (donations gratefully accepted), and the museum is open mid-June to mid-September from 10 am to 4 pm, but closed Sunday and Monday.
