Vote for Best of Jackson - Round 2 Here!

Lost Railway Museum to Host a Fundraiser


MARCH 27, 2018 - Before the car, when horses were still the way people got around town, the Interurban railway showed up and changed lives. Folks from rural America took a ride to the city – to shop, to seek medical care or retreat to the lakeside casino; this was the best way to travel.

You may not be familiar with this part of our history. And that’s why we brought it back. Most interurban systems started in the late 19th century and only operated until the late 1920’s. A very short lifespan for such a significant industry that grew quickly and died just as fast. Most people alive today have never heard of the interurban system. It is the Lost Railway!

The Lost Railway Museum will host a fundraiser on Friday May 4, 2018 from 6-8 p.m., at 142 W. Michigan Ave., in Grass Lake. The cost to attend is $75 per person. Heavy Appetizers will be provided by the Roaming Goat of Grass Lake. Beverages also will be provided. Attendees must be 21.

This fundraiser will showcase the progress being made on the restoration of Car #47 and Car #29 along with the other additions to the museum. Reservations are required. Visit www.LostRailwayMuseum.org.
