Our mission and purpose is to collect and preserve local history. We accomplish this by allowing users to upload photo's and documents at our website. We use the railroad as our theme for membership. Our mascot is a 1900's model steam locomotive replica which travels on the highways of America. We are available to come to your area for an event.


Founded December 2007. In August 2008 our membership was at 281. Everyone is invited to join our national group at Http://

Artifact Collections

Digital online Museum & Archives at two domains.

Research Collections

Our collections are the stories of regular everyday people. We record digital files from the families personal accounts of their own local communities. Whatever they wish to say and whatever they want to donate is just fine with us. Our History Committee sifts through the many user uploads and picks the good stuff to include in our official archives.
