Meridian Rails Announces plans for Excursions and a larger museum.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Meridian Rails Historical Society announces plans for an even larger scale railroad museum along Front Street in Downtown Meridian, Mississippi.

The Meridian Railroad Museum is looking forward to the future of the City of Meridian with plans to bring economic growth to the city of Meridian via plans for excursion railroading and entertainment.

In 2020, Meridian Rails Historical Society was formed and was donated the former Cotton Warehouse by Mr. Donny Massey. This building still houses the original steam powered cotton compress and will not only keep the history of the rails alive, but also tell the story of Mississippi’s rich agricultural history.

“We understand that this is a big undertaking. This project is not going to be completed over night or even in the next five years, but it’s a project that is crucial for the revival of our Downtown.” President, Lucy Dormont explains.

The current railroad museum will still house very important aspects of Meridian’s rail heritage and will carry out its vision as Mr. Jack Stack saw it when he donated the building in 1991. For more information or questions about this project, visit or email We are currently seeking funding and all donations make a huge impact!
