Old Trails Museum closed, posting images to Facebook

Old Trails Museum is currently closed but will be posting historic images on its Facebook page to stay current with visitors. Above: The Atlantic and Pacific Railroad agreed to complete a transcontinental line by 1878 in exchange for land grants from the federal government. In 1880, railroad survey crews laid out the new townsite of Winslow, named for President Edward F. Winslow of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway, which controlled the A&P’s central division. Because of the ample water supply from nearby Clear Creek, the railroad’s Third Division began in Winslow, and the first line arrived at the townsite in 1881. Engineer Charles McCauley (above) passed through Canyon Diablo, 27 miles west of Winslow, in a locomotive on July 10, 1888. (Photo courtesy of Old Trails Museum)
