Welcome to the Hennepin Overland Railway Historical Society Online!

The Hennepin Overland has decided to suspend our season in response to the COVID-19 health emergency and the Governers subsequent order to shut down museums and amusements. The date for resumption is not known at this time but will most likely depend on the governors recommendations. It is possible that we may not re-open to the public until next September.


The Hennepin Overland Railway Historical Society, Inc. is a nonprofit exempt organization under ยง501(c)(3). Its goals include providing entertainment and education for those interested in the history and operations of railroads. Within our south Minneapolis facility, we operate a railroading museum, the "Station 2501" museum/hobby shop, and a 65 foot long by 29 foot wide HO scale model train layout.
