Cresco Station Description and Details
The Barrett Township Historical Society maintains the Cresco Station Museum and the Library Research Center buildings providing many displays and exhibits that not only help preserve these items of the history of the area, but also tell the stories of the communities past.
History: Cresco Station was built by the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western (DL&W) Railroad in the 1870s, reaching its peak in the 1940s. Today, the Museum and Library offer a host of vintage antiques and displays.
The Library and Research Center is a one-story Art Deco style structure opposite the Cresco Station Museum. The building was built in 1928 and originally served as a Post Office. Later, the building found use as a soda fountain, a popular stop for incoming and outgoing passengers on the DL&W Railroad.
Today, the Historical Society houses the Barrett Township archives from 1859 to present and maintains a rotating exhibit of artifacts.
Amenities: The Station and Museum includes tables and chairs, tents, and restrooms. The Library Research Center is air-conditioned, has a bathroom, kitchen, Wifi access, computer, copier, parking and a slate covered courtyard for outdoor venues. On days of excursions, there will be a display of antique cars, live music, and artwork. The Barrett Township Historical Society will also be selling hot dogs, chips, drinks, and ice cream.
