Rails & Trails Days
First Weekend In June
Celebrate Fairbury's History
The first weekend in June gives locals and visitors a chance to travel back in
time when covered wagons and the new railroad were the principle means of transportation
along the trails that cut through the Fairbury area in southeast Nebraska.
Ride on miniature railroad, enjoy exhibits and model train displays at the Historic Rock Island Depot, located at 2nd (Bacon Road) and I Streets in Fairbury.
The Fairbury Rock
Island Depot, has
been lovingly restored and filled with artifacts recounting the history
of the Rock Island Railroad and the local residents who worked out
of the Fairbury depot.
