Saint Albans Museum / "Rail City" Stories
Thank you for your interest in our latest community history initiative, the Rail City History Project. For over a century St. Albans served as the home and hub for the Central Vermont Railway, connecting regional passengers, farm products, and other goods to stops around New England, Canada, and beyond. The Saint Albans Museum is working diligently to collect and preserve the stories, images, artifacts, documents, and other ephemera which detail this profound impact – before they are lost to time.
We want to hear your "Rail City" story! Complete this form and your memories will be added to the museum’s archives, with potential for inclusion in our exhibit! Please contact the Saint Albans Museum with any questions at (802) 527-7933 or at
