The Story

On Crane Day, February 29, 2020, with two bunches of balloons and one huge crane, we rescued The Louisville Caboose from being demolished. It was a historic day for us and our small town! With the caboose now safe and sound, we’re beginning to raise funds toward restoring and renovating it. While we’re still pulling together exact cost estimates and logistics for restoration, we’d love to invite you to join the efforts to make the next phase of this happen.

Can you make a contribution to help us restore The Louisville Caboose?

 


Updates

**UPDATE March 8 — We’re working to revamp the site and open up a totally new campaign for raising funds for restoration of the caboose, but until we’re able to we extended this campaign so we can get started. While we’re still gathering information on exactly what restoration will take, and haven’t updated the rest of the site yet with details, please stay tuned for more. Thank you!

**UPDATE Jan. 27 — Due to requests to make further contributions, we’ve re-opened the campaign to make it easy for people to continue supporting the project as we begin to move from rescuing the caboose, mid-February, to restoration & renovation. Thank you for your continued support!

**UPDATE DEC. 18 — We are – simply – in disbelief right now. As of 9PM today, a total of $19,485 has been contributed by you all to rescue The Louisville Caboose and salvage its sister cars. We’ll post more soon, however, we simply can’t express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciate for each and every person who’s joined us in this effort so far. From all of us, thank you. Thank you so much.

**UPDATE DEC. 10 — Thanks to a generous donor who’s agreed to match the next $4,000 in contributions, as well as a few volunteers who have stepped up to provide needed services pro-bono, we’ve updated the campaign  to not only save the caboose and relocate it, but also to make the necessary, major exterior repairs to keep it safe from the elements!!**
