Rail Baron’s Ball – The Gilded Age

Rail Baron’s Ball – The Gilded Age

Celebrate the golden age of railroad at the Galveston Railroad Museum’s first gala in 20 years. The site, formerly Galveston Union Station, was once a thriving, operating train station that served major railroad companies including Union Pacific, Santa Fe Railroad, and Southern Pacific Railroad.

Proceeds from the gala will benefit the Arthur R. Carmody, Jr. Library.

A repurposed Amtrak luggage car, the Arthur R. Carmody, Jr. Library will house the Carmody family’s railroad book collection and rare museum documents that will be made available to scholars, students, members, and by request. The library car is designed for mobility and will be used for emergency evacuation for safe keeping of documents and exhibits in case of a hurricane.
