Just a friendly reminder that we are NOT the Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Company Train Garden. Over the years, there has been some confusion regarding the identity and location of train gardens in Dundalk. After 15 years of operating Dundalk's  "second" train garden, people are still surprised to learn that there are actually TWO train gardens in Dundalk each Holiday season. The Wise Avenue garden is very much "alive and well" and remains a very popular Holiday destination for many thousands of visitors from near and far. 

Our garden here at the historical society is a bit smaller than that at Wise Avenue and is attended by considerably fewer people. It is our hope that those familiar with us will help us spread the word about our attraction in Dundalk's historic central business district - about two miles from the Wise Ave. Fire Station. It is our goal to boost our attendance this year, so that our train garden can also bring Holiday joy to the masses for many years to come.

All are welcome here!
