Rail Road Station Museum

Rail Road Station MuseumThe Breakwater & Frankford Railroad arrived in Selbyville in 1872. To the North, beyond Stations in Frankford, Dagsboro, Millsboro, Stockley, the railroad connected at Georgetown with the Breakwater Junction Railroad. That railroad was completed in 1868 and connected to the port Town of Lewes with the railroad that had been built down the center of Delmarva.

The Breakwater and Frankford was later extended southward from Selbyville to its southern terminus at Franklin City on the shores of Chincoteague Bay.

The Railroad Station was remodeled in 2004 to become a Museum.

The Grand opening for the Museum and ribbon cutting was held Sat. June 18, 2005, in conjunction with “Old Timers Days”.
