Welcome to WL Heritage Foundation

The West Liberty Heritage Foundation was established to collect and preserve historical information about the railroad, the city of West Liberty and surrounding area. Many artifacts, exhibits, pictures, and memorabilia can be viewed at the restored Rock Island Railroad Depot at 405 N. Elm Street as well as on this website. In addition to the depot, several other  buildings are now in Heritage Park.  Work is ongoing to restore and furnish the Heritage Barn, Swamp School, a 1913 Caboose and a 1930’s Tourist Cabin.  A number of park benches have been added to the grounds in 2014.  A 1925 switch engine and an antique carousel have been acquired and will be restored onsite.  We welcome your visit.
