Strasburg Museum

The Strasburg Museum, which opened in 1970 as a National Historic Landmark, serves as a link to the past of a small town in the Shenandoah Valley. Since settlers moved to this area as early as 1730, Strasburg became well known for its pottery manufacturing, which dated back to as early as 1761. After the last pottery was closed around 1909, the museum building-which was constructed for use as a steam pottery-was purchased by the Southern Railway Company for use as a passenger and freight depot until the 1960s. The museum features a variety of authentic local pieces, including Civil War articles, Native American artifacts, local pottery and photographs, early farm and train equipment, and even a red caboose that can be toured!
