Traveling in Style Exhibition
Available for just a short time, this exhibition presents artifacts and images from major Milwaukee rail lines. Don’t miss this elegant display which features many items from the dining and parlor cars of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, generally referred to as the Milwaukee Road.
Some featured items include full place settings of Peacock and Traveler china used in Milwaukee Road dining cars; several eras of silver serving dishes; a Hiawatha Speed emblem that was used on the side of the Super Dome lounge cars; and a heavy duty combination ash tray and drink holder from a Chicago and Northwestern lounge car.
The Milwaukee County Historical Society will be offering a variety of exhibitions throughout 2015. More information can be found throughout the year on our upcoming exhibitions page.
