When the Mendota Museum Historical Society was formed in 1993 many volunteers became involved to help preserve the history of the area. The railroad museum's restoration began in 95 and was completed in 1997.  Volunteers worked hard at transforming the land and building into an attractive site. Dedicated people who were near and far helped with their special abilities and created a one of a kind classy railroad museum that is visited by thousands each year. 
   Some of these volunteers i will show below and as i get more photos i will post them.

Go to Before and After photos on more about our dedicated volunteers.
