At 614 E. Main in Shawnee stands a totally unique railroad depot made of limestone blocks two to three-feet deep. With a 60 ft. tower, it looks like a Scottish castle. It was built in 1902 and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
The Pottawatomie County Historical Society began restoration of this depot in 1979, after it had stood vacant for two decades. The museum was opened on May 30, 1982. It contains numerous historical artifacts from the settlement of Shawnee, and also contains railroad memorabilia, and a gift shop.
The museum is open Tues. thru Fri. from 10AM till 4PM and on Sat. and Sun. from 2PM to 4PM. A suggested donation of $2.00 for Adults and $1.00 for Students is appreciated.
