North Creek Depot Museum

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near North Creek in Warren County

The museum is located in the heart of historic North Creek with ample free parking available except when Thomas the Tank Train is here.

Located at 5 Railroad Place in the Hamlet of North Creek in the Town of Johnsburg, Warren County. Open weekends in June and September, and Wednesdays through Sundays in July and August. Free admission; donations are accepted. Listed on the State and National Registries, the North Creek Railroad Station Complex is in the southeast portion of the Adirondack Forest Preserve with more or less rural lands to the south and east. The railroad line hugs the western shore of the Hudson River, traversing North Creek on its way to Tahawus. The station complex is at the northern end of the hamlet on the West Bank of the Hudson. Noted as an historian’s destination, The North Creek Railroad Station is remembered as the place where Theodore Roosevelt, on September 14, 1901, learned of the death of President McKinley and of his own succession to the presidency of the United States. The station also deserves attention for its role as the northern-most terminus of the Adirondack Railroad, a line which played an indispensable role in making the central Adirondacks accessible for recreational and industrial development. While railroad history buffs may admire the intact state of this railway complex, it is also noteworthy in that it preserves an intact collection of structures associated with railroad history.
