Trails & Rails Museum is owned and operated by the Buffalo County Historical Society. We are a progressive museum located on the route of the Mormon Trail.


Buffalo County is rich in the history of the great transportation routes of the past, present, and the future - the Mormon Trail, Union Pacific Railroad, Lincoln Highway, and Interstate 80. On this website you will find information about BCHS/Trails & Rails Museum events, archive information, contact information, photos of our property, as well as general information!
