OUR KOSSUTH COUNTY: Train station will remain

The last few months at the Kossuth County Agricultural and Motorsports Museum have been active with several events occurring and additional events in the planning stages. Going back several months as COVID-19 was still more prevalent, some events were cancelled or changed. Also, unfortunately, long-time board member, contributor, and owner of the Benschoter Train Station, Arlen Benschoter, passed away on May 27, 2021.
The Benschoter Train Station has been part of the museum since it opened in 2013, and Mr. Benschoter’s collection of trains and associated scenery rival any model train display in the state. Mr. Benschoter, in addition to sharing his collection with the museum for all of us to enjoy, contributed countless hours maintaining his collection and demonstrating it to museum visitors.
