Griffith Historical Park & Museum, Griffith, Indiana

That tiny person you see is me standing in front of our 110-year-old Grand Trunk depot, which is the centerpiece of the Griffith Historical Park & Museum.

In the background are our railcars: the EJ&E transfer caboose, the Pullman troopsleeper which carried military personnel during World War II, and part of our road caboose, pictured at the left. Out of site is our interlocking tower, pictured at the left.

At one time, five different rail lines crossed in Griffith, and some 180 trains came through each day when all railroads were in operation. Yøu can see we earned our nickname, The Town that Came to the Tracks.
