This building was once the home of the Richmond
Locomotive Works
, one of the world's most
famous steam locomotive builders.

Steam engines powered the industrial revolution
in the United States, and Richmond-made steam
locomotives carried an enormous quantity of
manufactured products across the country and
around the world.

The pieces you see here were all integral parts of
the Richmond Locomotive Works assembly line,
which manufactured great American steam engines
in this building from 1887 to 1927.
