Peterson Station Museum/Visitor Center
“Nearly 100 years after Peterson Station opened to serve Southern Minnesota Railroad customers, it welcomed the public again in 1974 – this time as a museum. Today, visitors can explore the area’s past through historical memorabilia, photographs, and artifacts, or learn more about their family’s history in the area at the genealogy center.”
John Erickson is the founder and curator of the Peterson Station Museum. Often seen assisting him is his wife, Darlene. The museum was moved to its current location from a spot next to the old railroad – now the Root River State Trail. A new addition was built recently to house the expanding collection.
