In the fall of 1871, the Mahwah Train Station was constructed. The new building helped the small town of Mahwah grow and to prosper over the years. After spending much of its life as a station, the former depot was utilized as a storage facility. Later, the station was moved to its current location and was transformed into The Old Station Museum in 1967. It later became known as the Mahwah Museum. 

Inside, visitors will find displays of various objects that reflect the history of this railroad including a scale model of the Erie system, an operating model railroad, signs, photos, the station master’s desk, and much more.

Behind the Old, Station is the Erie Lackawanna Caboose. Inside the caboose are rare photos and artifacts where visitors can learn about the importance of the caboose in railroading.
