Now You Can Help Support Our Project To Provide Online Access To Iowa's Rich Railroad History

Regional railroads have connected the communities of Iowa since the late 1840s. That is over 170 years of documents, maps, photos, stories, schedules, newspaper articles, and much more, waiting to be preserved, digitized, and made available free online.

For every $150 that is crowdfunded, Advantage Archives will make 750 new digital images available on the Iowa Railroad History Archive. This keyword searchable and user-friendly digital archive will be a free online resource, accessible to anyone.

You can also choose to help support the long term preservation of any documents not yet captured to microfilm for long term archival purposes. This microfilm will then be made available to digitize and added to the online collection.

You can support this project by clicking the "Support Local History" button to add to the cart. You can contribute as little as $10 or as much as you want. If you wish to contribute more, increase the contribution using the quantity selector for the option you select.
