The West Florida Railroad Museum
The Pensacola and Atlantic Railroad was chartered on March 4, 1881 to connect Pensacola with the parts
of Florida east of the Apalachicola River, straight across the sparsely-populated Panhandle. The railroad company
completed its surveys and began full construction on June 1, 1881.
One of the member benefits is access to the Museum archives and library.
The Museum occupies the L&N Milton combination freight and passenger depot that was built in 1907-09 on the site of the original 1882 P&A depot.
The station was closed in 1973, bought by the Santa Rosa Historical Society, and partially restored with a 1976 Bicentennial grant.
