Railtown State Historic Park is open but only minimally due to the state’s Regional Stay at Home Order to stop the surge of COVID-19 cases and prevent a strain on the health care system. This action will help protect critical care for patients. While the order includes the closure of campground sites in impacted regions, the state also recognizes that mental health is physical health. As such, day-use outdoor areas of park units currently open to the public will remain open. Members of the same household are encouraged to stay local and recreate responsibly in the outdoors. In addition to the day-use and parking area at Railtown the Depot Store and Holiday Baggage Car for shopping is open with limited capacity and face coverings required. Closed at Railtown are; train rides, indoor exhibits, guided tours, special events, and public gatherings.
