Fort Fairfield Railroad Museum

The Railroad Museum is located at the old Bangor & Aroostook Railyard at the corner of Depot & Brown Streets.

The museum collection is comprised of a display of locomotive and cars.  It includes a newly refurbished combination sleeping-dining car used for elegant gourmet dinners and other events. 

The Canadian-Pacific Railroad station (1875) was moved out of the floodplain along the Aroostook River to this site in 2000. 

A public pancake breakfast and open house is featured during the Maine Potato Blossom Festival on the 3rd Saturday in July.    

An antique farm machinery display is set up near the B&A Railroad museum.  It features large and small horse drawn equipment for transportation and farming potatoes, hay, flax, and grain.  Some equipment goes back to the time when oxen were used to plow the fields around Fort Fairfield. 

Adjacent to the museum is an old stone railroad station which is privately owned (and as of October 2016 for sale).

The Frontier Hertiage Historical Society maintains the Fort Fairfield Railroad Museum and is always looking for volunteers and donations to help maintain, preserve and restore the many historic buildings and artifacts in their collection.
