About The Railroad-Depot History Museum
Located alongside the Burlington Northern tracks, the Depot is a clear reminder of the importance of the railroad in the economy and social life of old Ritzville. For generations in the life of Ritzville--as of the nation--rail travel was the primary mode of transport. For over sixty years of Ritzville's history, both passenger travel and shipments of freight to markets near and far went chiefly by train. The railroad was instrumental to the settlement of Ritzville by carrying its crops to national and international markets, and by bringing new settlers to the area.
