Before there was the Internet, trains connected people, goods, and news. In downtown Plano, the Interurban Railway Museum commemorates the rail that ran from Denison through Plano to Dallas and destinations beyond from 1908 until 1948. Located next to the picturesque gazebo, fountain, and playgrounds at Haggard Park, the museum is a must for history buffs, train enthusiasts, and budding conductors.
