The Chester Railway Station and Museum houses trains, railroad memorabilia and artifacts from Chester’s railroading days. Built around 1841, it was operated for many years along the line from Springfield to Albany, New York. Exhibits include the Children’s Heritage Boxcar Museum, and the depot is surrounded by a variety of historic railroad cars, including a 1923 tank car, a 1919 wooden caboose and a 1929 restored wooden boxcar. The station is also the site of the annual Chester on Track festival.
