Peavine Line Museum

104 N. Main
Stockport,, IA 52651

The depot/museum was built in 1882 at Longview (2.5 m. NW of town.) In 1890, the depot was moved on two flat cars to the current location at the 4-way stop in Stockport. You will find railroad memorabilia from the C.B.&Q. Railroad and the Peavine Line that ran from Ft. Madison to Ottumwa. The railroad began as a narrow gauge, by 1890 it had changed to a standard gauge. The rails in front of the depot date back to 1889. Open during special events or by appointment.
