. The RCHM is a static museum of a museum [Rail City] which recounts the history of Rail City Museum and all of its equipment during its years of operation from 1955 to 1974. The Rail City Historical Museum was open for three years [1997 - 1999]. The owner, son of the founder Stanley A. Groman, MD from Syracuse, NY, discovered his father's negatives in 1991. He spent 7 years developing over 3,000 images many of which are posted on the website and located in the current Rail City Historical Museum.
The owner hopes to reduce the overhead by going non-profit and reopen the RCHM museum full time in the future. It was originally opened under a "for profit" venture as the owner wanted to retain the focus of the museum as it was his father who built the original Rail City Museum. The intent was always to return all profits to the museum to perpetuate it but as is often the case the proceeds did not cover the overhead of insurance, workers conpensation, etc., for the three years that it was opened. But the museum is totally intact and can be visited with advance notice from the owner.
