Strasburg Museum

Strasburg, Virginia 

The building that now houses the Strasburg Museum began life as the Strasburg Steam Pottery Company. In 1913 the building became the Southern Railway depot which operated into the 1960s.

German settlers, mostly from Pennsylvania began to arrive in the 1730s and Strasburg was chartered in 1761. During the Civil War, the town was strategically important as a key railroad center strategically vital to the South's reliance on the agriculturally rich Shenandoah Valley.
