   Casey Jones' Attic Store & Museum Artifacts

Many items in our museum are artifacts of local railroads and show the significance they had in NC history. Artifacts such as tools, signs, and pictures - tell the story about the railroad we use today and others, the people that worked on them, and the communities they served.
You can also create some of your own history with the purchase of gifts and memorabilia such books, clothing, and toys from our store.
