History along the Finger Lakes Trail - Allegany Region

Salamanca Rail Museum

Salamanca, New York 14779, United States

Created By: Diane Lebo Wallace


The Salamanca Rail Museum is a fully restored passenger depot constructed in 1912 by the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railway. Artifacts, photographs and video offer a glimpse into an era over 90 years ago, when rail was the primary means of transportation from city to city. From the brick-walled baggage room to the multi-windowed "Ladies Retiring Room," everything in the building is either a restored original or an exact duplicate based on the original architectural plans. Admission is free; donations are appreciated.

Seasonal hours; check the museum's Facebook page.
