Save to foursquare

Honors Cotter's railroad history and the workers who lived it. At the entrance to the memorial grounds is a black granite monument that highlights the founders and four railroad emblems: Missouri Pacific Iron Mountain, Missouri Pacific, Union Pacific, and M&NA (Missouri and North Arkansas); an engraving of a locomotive is on the back. Also in the park are a restored Missouri Pacific Caboose 11351 built in 1948 and a Rock Island Caboose 17843, a converted 1915-era boxcar. This wood and steel caboose is unique in that very few exterior, horizontally wood-sheathed and outside steel braced cabooses that were converted from early 1900 built boxcars exist today. A brick memorial wall containing the names of workers surrounds the life-size sculpture of a conductor.
