The Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad first came through Cresco in 1851. The peak use of the Cresco Station can be categorized into two periods: the Freight Period from 1851 to circa 1900, and the Passenger Period from 1900 to the 1950’s. The Cresco Station was closed in 1967, partially due to the increase in automobile travel in the United States. The restored Cresco Station was made available to the Barrett Township Historical Society in 1999 by the Weiler Family Foundation, and subsequently reopened to the community as a museum.
