Decades at The Durham: Dining by Rail

Support The Durham Museum and join Honorary Chairs Julie Fritz, Stephanie Koraleski and Shirley Young for the On Track Guild’s Decades at The Durham fall luncheon and fundraiser. This year’s theme, Dining by Rail, celebrates the Golden Age of railcar dining experienced in the 1930s and 1940s. Attendees will travel back in time through a re-creation of dining car recipes in the museum’s Swanson Gallery, which was formerly Union Station’s Hayden House restaurant. See historic images and artifacts, and enjoy a discussion with James D. Porterfield, author of Dining by Rail and other historic railcar recipe books. Tickets, available online at DurhamMuseum.org/DiningByRail, start at $75. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the museum. For more details, contact Elisabeth Barrett at 402-444-5071, ext. 578 or ebarrett@DurhamMuseum.org.
