There’s A Little-Known, Fascinating Train Park In Iowa And You’ll Want To Visit

Have you heard the story of Kate Shelley, an Irish-American from Boone who risked her life to save dozens of people? She quickly became a local legend for her heroic actions. Now you can learn a little bit about this Iowan hero and visit a park created in her honor while enjoying a lot of new train history knowledge.

You can find directions to the park (it’s a little hard to find!) from Boone History Museum’s website. Be warned about visiting the Kate Shelley High Bridge at night, though – it’s known to be the most haunted bridge in the entire state.
