The Dunsmuir Railroad Depot Historical Society members will open the Dunsmuir Museum during the town’s RAILROAD DAYS June 8th 1-4 p.m., June 9th 10 a.m.-4p.m. and June 10th 1-4 p.m. Be sure to see the RAILROAD DAYS button collection. To complete the Museum’s collection, we still need buttons for 1947-48, 1966-67, 1973-74, 2000, and 2014. Your donation, or a photo-copy, of these missing buttons would be appreciated.
RAILROAD DAYS began in 1941 and was called “Southern Pacific Railroad Celebration.” No events were held from 1942-46 due to WWII. And the event was called Canyon Days in 1966-67 and 2000 and River Daze 1975-79.
The Museum still needs RAILROAD DAYS tee shirts for 1975-77 River Daze, 1985 and 1987, 2000 Canyon Days and 2010 to complete its collection.
The Dunsmuir Museum will also be open June 2nd and June 16th from 10 a.m.-2p.m.
