Board a train this summer to enjoy the newly renovated Cresco Station. Visitors to the site will be able to enjoy a display of antique cars, live music, and artwork. Throughout the month of August, visitors will have the opportunity to view a special month-long display on the "55 Flood."
Cresco Station was built by the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western (DL&W) Railroad in the 1870s, reaching its peak in the 1940s. Today, the Museum and Library offer a host of vintage antiques and displays.
The Library and Research Center is a one-story Art Deco-style structure opposite the Cresco Station Museum. The building was built in 1928 and originally served as a Post Office. Later, the building found use as a soda fountain, a popular stop for incoming and outgoing passengers on the DL&W Railroad.
Today, the Historical Society houses the Barrett Township archives from 1859 to present-day and maintains a rotating exhibit of artifacts.

Returning train ride will last approximately 1.5 hours; departing Cresco at 2 PM and arriving in Steamtown at 3:30 PM.
