As a part of CCHS’s newest exhibit on Railroading in the Cumberland Valley, we will kick off our Family Railroad Passport Summer Program. Families can pick up a Passport at one of our six participating museums: Cumberland County Historical Society (Carlisle), Mechanicsburg Museum Association (Mechanicsburg), East Pennsboro Historical Society, Shippensburg Historical Society (Shippensburg), Cumberland Valley Railroad Museum (Shippensburg), Conrail Historical Society (Shippensburg) and Harris Tower (Harrisburg). Visit all six locations, check in at the location, and tag CCHS on social media OR take a family picture, bring the passport back to our History on High Gift Shop in Carlisle, and receive a FREE Railroad Themed gift.
Railroading in the Valley is a comprehensive exhibition featuring objects, photos, ephemera, and a wonderful interactive model train display spanning six galleries at the Cumberland County Historical Society at 21 North Pitt Street in Historic Carlisle, PA. The exhibit will run until mid-December and is FREE to the public.
