Preserving the Rails - 1920s Caboose


Be part of this exciting opportunity to add a special feature to the first phase of the new 1920s Main Street community currently under construction.

The Caboose, once a vital part of the railroad, was the last car on a freight train and provided shelter for the crew. With your help, the Sauder Village experience makes learning fun and memorable….
encouraging us all to slow down, spend quality time together and enjoy fun with a purpose.
Your gift will help preserve this charming piece of railroad history!  All aboard!
