Are you ready to take a journey back to a bygone era? Then visit the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in northwest Indiana. Situated near the former junction of the Erie, PRR, C&O, and NYC in historic North Judson, HVRM offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and smells of railroading during its heydays. Visit the museum or take a train ride on our vintage rail equipment. There's lots to do and see at HVRM!
Experience the magic of the season with a trip aboard the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum's Santa Train! Trains leave the depot in North Judson, Indiana, and take passengers on a leisurely journey through the rural wintery landscape. Passengers get to visit Santa and take family photos to remember the experience. Plus, every child aboard the train receives a special gift from the jolly old elf himself! Santa Trains take passengers on a 60-minute, 10-mile round-trip journey from North Judson to English Lake where the train crosses the beautiful Kankakee River before returning to town.
CHALLENGE GRANT OPPORTUNITY: An anonymous donor will contribute up to $7,000 in matching funds, which means that we only need to raise $7,000 to get this project completed!
You can help rebuild the stairs at Grasselli Tower! To help make it easier to contribute to this cause, we've made it fun and simple. There are 19 treads and 2 platforms on the stairs. Each of the platforms can be sponsored for $500 each, while each tread can be sponsored for $230 each. The names of each sponsor will be featured on a sponsorship board inside Grasselli Tower once the project is complete. If you can't sponsor a tread or platform, you can still contribute by becoming a handrail sponsor! Handrail sponsors can contribute $25, $50, $75 or $100 amounts and still be recognized on our sponsorship board. Any amount that we raise over the goal will be deposited into our Grasselli Tower Fund to help maintain the tower.
