Welcome to the Hennepin Overland Railway Historical Society

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.
