National Railroad Hall of Fame

Congratulations to Julie King, Sheryl Hinman, and the National Railroad Hall of Fame on your $1000 grant. The grant will be used to provide a multi-media program for all 5th graders in Galesburg. It will offer a variety of interactive activities celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad. Classrooms will come alive through Lincoln, the Railroads, and the Transformation of America. Students will gain insight into President Lincoln’s vision for a transcontinental railroad and appreciate the line’s transformative impact on the nation from its construction to present day.
