The Heart of the Heartlands Museum Complex is located in the former mining community of Carona, KS. (Click link for directions to Carona or map.) Our complex includes the museum building (dedicated to the Webb family); the Missouri Pacific Depot from Carona, KS; the Missouri Pacific Depot from Boston, MO; a collection of railroad locomotives and cars; and a railroad signal display. The outdoor displays are open for viewing at any time.
The museum and depot buildings are open for visitors
on the first and third weekends of June, July, and August,
1:00 PM until 5:00 PM, or by appointment.
The Heart of the Heartlands has dedicated the museum building at the Carona museum complex to Charles R. “Dick” Webb and his family. Our members are indebted to the Webb family and Watco Companies, Inc. for their gracious cooperation and assistance that has allowed our museum complex to come into existence, grow, and become the attraction that it has. Dick Webb encouraged the formation of our club shortly after the purchase of their first railroad.
