Sketches of Amberg Train History

While updating the Amberg Depot exhibit a group of photographs were removed from the walls and two teacher manuals were found. They were all part of "A Study of Railway Transporation," a teaching unit from the Association of American Railroads, 1945. Some of the photographs are now included in a virtual exhibit that provides pictorial sketches of Amberg train history.

New Windows for the Old Town Hall

Through the help of the Town of Amberg and several community workers windows are being replaced in the Old Town Hall. The window frames were decayed and some were nearly falling out of place.

There are also plans to place a new roof on the Amberg Depot. The Society has received donations and would like to thank all who have participated in maintaining the buildings on the Amberg Museum Complex. The future of these historic buildings is being preserved.
