Hocking Valley Scenic Railway

The Hocking Valley Scenic Railway was founded on April 14, 1864, under the name Mineral Rail Road. The railroad saw a handful of name changes and different uses before becoming known as Columbus & Hocking Hill Railroad. It was intended to transport Hocking Valley’s salt and coal out. Years later, the railroad discontinued the transport of passengers and eventually, stopped the use of that railroad for good. Members of the community hated to see this notable railroad not being used, so volunteers morphed it into a tourist attraction. Today, the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway is managed, operated, and maintained by volunteers. Your whole family will enjoy visiting this historic railroad. If you visit on the weekend, you can even take a ride on the train!
