“Celebrating O Winston Link's photography”

The O. Winston Link Museum offers guided tours to groups of all ages. Docents discuss the historic passenger station, the history of the N&W and Link's photography, audio and film recordings. The guided tour explores the background of the building; its architectural significance, as well as the social aspects of its use, including rail transportation and the segregated South of the 1950's. The Museum exhibits over 300 of Link's primarily black and white, night time photographs, from his five year project, from1955 thru1960, to capture the vanishing of America's last railroad to run exclusively steam locomotives. The galleries are divided thematically, and encompass everything from Link's technical mastery, with examples of lighting equipment, interactive exhibits, and our new darkroom display, to life along the lines in a 1950's world. Call (540)982-5465 today, to book your guided tour.
