Southern Museum Wraps Up Successful Railroad Rendezvous | Southern Museum

More than 600 people turned out Saturday for the Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History’s first ever Railroad Rendezvous event.

During the event, museum visitors were able to participate in games such as sack races and a bean bag toss, learn about railroads and safety precautions to take around them, and even de-code hobo symbols and learn about living life on the rails.

“We want thank each and every person who came out to support us to help make our first ever Railroad Rendezvous a tremendous success,” said Valerie Serra, events coordinator for the Southern Museum. “This event will be a fun one for families for years to come.”

To view photos from Saturday’s event, visit Guests are invited to post their photos from the event to the Museum’s Facebook page.

The museum’s next event is Polar Express Adventure, scheduled for December. Also, the Kennesaw Museum Foundation is lacing up its running shoes and sprinting towards the 5th Annual Great Locomotive Chase 5K on Sept. 7.
