The West Florida Railroad Museum

L&N Depot

The Milton City Council has overridden the Mayor’s requirement to wear masks inside businesses, based on that the West Florida Railroad Museum will not require masks inside the buildings. However, in accordance with both the Florida and Santa Rosa Department of Health recommendations we are strongly requesting visitors wear masks and maintain social distancing for the protection of themselves and our staff. We will have free masks for visitors that do not have one.

The West Florida Railroad Museum is delighted to announce that we will be open on a limited basis for visitors starting at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday May, 20. The Hours of Operation will be from 10:00 - 2:30 Wednesday through Saturday. The Inside and Garden model trains will operate on Fridays and Saturdays pending the availability of volunteers. The riding train will not be operating and the Dining Car will not be available for rental. If you have any questions

The Pensacola and Atlantic Railroad was chartered on March 4, 1881 to connect Pensacola with the parts of Florida east of the Apalachicola River, straight across the sparsely-populated Panhandle. The railroad company completed its surveys and began full construction on June 1, 1881.

One of the member benefits is access to the Museum archives and library.

The Museum occupies the L&N Milton combination freight and passenger depot that was built in 1907-09 on the site of the original 1882 P&A depot. The station was closed in 1973, bought by the Santa Rosa Historical Society, and partially restored with a 1976 Bicentennial grant.
