this is a nicely renovated original train depot in Hornell. The train museum is small, but run by some very knowledgeable train enthusiasts...nice for family.

The town of Hornell established this museum in 2005 and it obviously serves a local need, with some interesting exhibits about the Erie Railroad and the town itself. It is worth spending a half hour learning a bit about small town America.
