Wish it was open more... When they are open it is so cool to see all the old stuff from train to military items.

Literally. It seems as though no one in town even knows when it will be open. A sign says if the flags are out, they are open. We have lived up here for over 6 months now and never seen the flags out once.

Had to look through the windows but the place was shut down. Went and had lunch and returned. Still shut down. Might have been interesting?? Who knows? Do not make a special effort to visit!

A volunteer opened the buildings up for me...an old train station and two railroad cars. The station was full of local memorabilia and my guide offered lots of information about Gorham and Berlin history. I particularly liked the story of Dolly Copp! The freight cars...More

Word of mouth led me to treat the family to a visit to this Historical Society and Railroad Museum. The well preserved 1907 train Depot that serves as the museum was clean and well lit. The personnel were very pleasant and interesting to listen to....More
