The museum is staffed by Oakfield Historical Society volunteers, steeped in the lore of the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad
and the importance of the town as a division point.
You may even find yourself talking to a retired Bangor & Aroostook railroader while visiting!
Railroad history lives at the Oakfield Station!
Our Museum is dedicated to the early years of Railroad Transportation. Besides seeing the historic wood frame station building (pictured above), you can be intrigued by hundreds of photographs- some of which are over a century old. There are also vintage signs and advertising pieces, signal lanterns, original railroad maps, telegraph equipment, newspapers, a Hand Car and a Motor Car, restored mail carts, the C-66 caboose, and a weathervane that came from the top of the old water tower that was demolished in 1982.
We even have a small scale model of our Railroad Station!
