The Vestal Museum

Vestal Museum

What is today the Vestal Museum served to welcome  passengers from Buffalo to New York who arrived by train from 1881 until 1959. It has survived relocation once, and is soon to move again to the Rail Trail.


Coal House

Now home to the Happy Squirrel Bakery and Museum offices, the Coal House was used to weigh coal on trucks from 1908 until 2002. It has also survived a relocation and will soon be joined on the Rail Trail by the Vestal Museum.
