The Ohio Valley Railroad Historical Foundation was incorporated on January 10, 2006 as a 501C3 corporation for the purpose of promoting and preserving the history of the railroads and railroading, past, present and future in the Ohio Valley.


The Ohio Valley has a rich heritage of railroading. Coal from the mines of Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania was hauled by train to the Ohio River where it was loaded on barges for transportation down the Mississippi to Southern states. Oranges, lemons and grapefruits are transported in refrigerated cars from Florida through the Ohio Valley to northern markets. Automobiles from Detroit are hauled on car carriers through the Ohio Valley to dealers through out the nation. Cattle from Texas were driven to the railheads in Kansas where they were loaded on cattle cars for shipment through the Ohio Valley to the slaughter houses in Chicago. The steaks were then loaded on refrigerator cars for shipment back through the Ohio Valley to the Southern markets. This is just a brief freight history.
