Dues Payment & Donations
Help us grow! The Muskegon Railroad Historical Society is a registered 501c3 corporation with papers filed with the State of Michigan. We are always graciously looking for donations to our organization. Cash, will, trust and other monetary donations can be arranged by contacting the Society through the website or by mailing us at MRHS 561 W. Western Ave. Muskegon MI 49440

Donations of historical artifacts or documents can be brought to the club during normal hours or contact the Society and we can arrange a special time. We do take donations of model trains and model railroad supplies but donation of these types of these items should be prearranged with the Society.

All donations are tax-deductable and you will receive a form for use in filing for your income tax.

We unfortunately are unable to "appraise" the value of any historical or model railroad related items. We can put you in contact with businesses or individuals that can do legal appraisals.

Muskegon Railroad Historical Society History
On December 12, 1982, the Muskegon Railroad Historical Society held their charter meeting in the meeting room of the Muskegon Heritage Association on Western Avenue in Muskegon, Michigan. A proposed charter was formed and submitted to an attorney for review, and the first board of directors was elected. The elected board was as follows:

President: Ken Kadrovich
Vice President: Gust Danigelis
Secretary: Kent McFaden
Treasurer: Chuck Steward

At Large Board of Directors:
Leo Duester, John Dykema, Betty Stewart

Over time, much developed, and the MRHS was granted space by the Muskegon Heritage Association (MHA) on the second floor of their building at 561 W. Western Avenue in Muskegon. The building was once the Muskegon Hotel and has also been refered to as the Hathaway Building. The building was virtually gutted by a fire in the past, and now require tremendous amounts of work.Much progress has been made over the years, and as the site develops, additional pictures and accounts of the development, growth, and expansion of the MRHS will be highlighted.

Presentations are scheduled the first Tuesday of each month at 7:45pm and are held in the MRHS meeting room. There is no admission.
