A non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and education of railroad history in Western New York State, the Province of Ontario, and neighboring regions. 

The Niagara Frontier Chapter NRHS is one of the oldest chapters of the National Railway Historical Society.  

Originally named the NRHS Buffalo Chapter, we received our

charter on February 1, 1942.  

Charter members were listed as Russell H. Shapley, John M. Prophet III, Charles A. Erler, and Albert D. Kerr. 

Prior to 1942, we were the Buffalo Division of the Railroad Enthusiasts.


To better reflect our mission, the Chapter's name was changed on

February 29, 1988 to Niagara Frontier Chapter NRHS, Inc.


On June 1, 2003 the long anticipated opening of our

Railroad Museum of the Niagara Frontier was celebrated.

Housed in the historic Erie Railroad Freight Depot in

North Tonawanda, New York, our museum contains various railroad artifacts which celebrate the rich heritage of railroading

in the Niagara Frontier Region.
