Built in 1872, the Railroad House is the oldest house in Sanford. Originally built as a home for the first depot agent of the Raleigh and Augusta Airline Railroad, the Railroad House now houses the local museum. Artifacts, documents, pictures and other items of historical value are preserved there. Students will also see the Old Steam Locomotive #12.
The Railroad House Historical Association provides tours of the house and other historic sites. To make arrangements for a tour, contact the Railroad Historical Association at P.O. Box 1023 Sanford, NC 27330 or 919-776-7479.
