'The Iron Horse Comes to Town: The Railroads of Siloam Springs' lecture by Mike Sypult

  • Siloam Springs Museum 112 North Maxwell Street Siloam Springs, AR, 72761 United States (map)

Join us as we explore the coming of the railroads to Siloam Springs beginning in 1893 and continuing to this day.  Beginning with the Arthur Stilwell’s “P&G” building southward to the Gulf coast and the short-lived “Peavine” extending to Rogers and Fayetteville, Siloam Springs has a rich history of railroad development in the region.  Learn more about the “Flying Crow” and “Southern Belle” that once graced the city and transported mail and passengers from New Orleans to Kansas City and beyond.  From steam locomotives to modern diesels, the story of the Iron Horse in Siloam Springs will be a memorable one!
