Folkston's railroad heritage is very important to the people who live here. Recognizing the significance of this aspect of Folkston's history, the City of Folkston has renovated and preserved the old railroad depot which includes the Folkston Railroad Transportation Museum.
Visit the "Cookie" Williams Model Train Room and a one-of-a-kind radio exhibit spanning four decades of radio communication. The museum also contains railroad artifacts such as genuine log books and a model office setting used by dispatchers many years ago. View pictures of logging by rail in the Okefenokee Swamp and numerous other items of railroad history.
The museum is located inside the "Depot" in downtown Folkston. The grounds around the facility are beautifully landscaped with large oak trees, benches, and a covered pavilion. We encourage you to visit Folkston and see the railroad history displayed in the Folkston Railroad Transportation Museum.
