Interstate 40 exit 80A at the Highway 45 Bypass. Turn right at the first light south of I-40 at Casey Jones Lane. Look for the real caboose sign in the sky and follow the signs into Casey Jones Village. All aboard!


All aboard for Casey Jones Museum, where you will learn the story of the world famous train engineer who gave his life to save his passengers in the last ride of the Cannonball Express in April of 1900. His story inspired over 150 versions of The Ballad of Casey Jones, film characters and tv shows. The beautiful 8,000-square-foot building is modeled after an 1890's train depot just like Casey Jones would have pulled into. It houses a theatre to watch a short Casey Jones documentary, a permanent exhibit hall, the Jackson Railroad Room and a charming museum store complete with a Thomas the Tank Engine children's play area and model trains. It is a true American treasure. Show your Brooks Shaw's Old Country Store buffet receipt and receive a free Casey Jones Museum admission with one paid adult admission! 

We are proud to welcome our new Executive Director, Jimmy Bailey, who joined us in May of 2014.  Casey Jones Village is a family destination that includes the historic Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum, Brooks Shaw's Old Country Store restaurant, the Casey Jones Village Amphitheatre, the Shoppes at Casey Jones Village, Providence House, the Village Chapel, Casey Jones Mini-Golf, the Wellwood store with the Wildlife in Wood Studio of master woodcarver Dee Moss and the Judge Milton Brown Pullman Railcar.
