A passionate group of people formed the Nishna Valley Model RailRoad Society in 1990 in an effort to save one man's love for Trains and Model Railroading along with the history of Railroads in the area. After raising funds a Building was constructed on the Shelby County Fairgrounds to house Memoriblia related to the Railroads of the Area. It was proposed that a HO Scale Model Layout be built from the materials donated to the group. The group aquired the 501(c)3 in 1994 and has been an operating exhibit to this day. The building has served as an open exhibit during every Shelby County Fair since its inception. Among other accomplishments the First Grade Classes of the Harlan Community Schools make a yearly field trip to tour the building and learn about the history of the Railroads and Transportation and get to see a minature Railroad in operation in a safe envoirment.
