Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday


Evansville Museum Transportation Center

Have you been to the Evansville Museum lately? Have you walked over to the Transportation Center? I tend to think of it as the Train Museum, but it is a lot more than that. It has river travel & roadway vehicles, including the Charles Covert bright red fire truck (about 1902)!
Today's plaque is featuring the Train Committee's "Circle of Remembrance" for a dream that came true... 1967-1999! [Please click on photos for enlarged view.]
This nice sign is on the outside of the building.
This is outside in back of the building. Very nicely similar to a passenger railroad depot.
Becky West is listening to a recording about the train's caboose.

When did they add the train portion?

According to the plaque, it was dedicated in april of 1999. It has been around for sometime, now. Becky & I have visited about 3 times over the last 8 years or so. It is a cool exhibit that includes several old vehicles. It has a cool model train display that is a model of Evansville and the trains go around the city. Evan would love it!
