The town of West Yellowstone was created when the Union Pacific Railroad made an agreement with the forest service to bring a line to the outskirts of Yellowstone National Park. This museum showcases a lot of the early history of transportation in our area.
The ClubHouse Inn is located adjacent to the Yellowstone Historic Center. In 1908 the Union Pacific railroad introduced train service to Yellowstone National Park. The Yellowstone Historic Center occupies and operates the museum and the 10-acre Oregon Short Line Terminus Historic District which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
