Gallipolis Railroad Freight Station Museum

Gallipolis Railroad Freight Station Museum (2019)

The Gallipolis Hocking Valley Railroad Freight Station, 918 Third Avenue, was built in 1901. The station remained a bustling freight depot for the area through the ownership of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway as well as the Baltimore and Ohio and the Chessie System. The station was closed by CSX in late 1981. In the years that followed, ownership passed to the O.O. McIntyre Park District and the City of Gallipolis. In 2015, a group of concerned residents organized by Dallas (Jim) Love became involved in efforts to save the deteriorating 26’ x 80′ station.

We collect and craft carefully curated treasures and items of usefulness that appeal to our sense of adventure, and aim to share these wondrous items with you.

The Colony Club (2015)

The Colony Club is a 1937 movie theater that has been renovated into a restaurant and a full bar with a stage and movie screen.


Our unique venue has a variety of seating options to meet your needs whether it’s for a business lunch, intimate dinner or larger gathering.
Step through the restored original doors and you can see an old movie or sporting event playing on the big screen. Don’t miss our specials on the chalk board as you walk down the corridor and into the Colony. The brick walls and large murals add to the relaxing atmosphere.

Our main level seating has comfy booths, low and high top tables along with bar seating. Four steps down into the lower level and you can get comfy on the couches, grab a table or kick back in the theater seats. Wherever you sit, you can enjoy the afternoon’s or evening’s entertainment.

So what’s on the menu? Chef Derek heads up the kitchen along with our other great employees. Start off with some calamari, boneless wings or nachos. After that, how about bourbon glazed salmon, salad and roasted red potatoes… a burger from Gallia County’s own Greenlee Family Farms… or there’s one of our hand stretched pizzas made to order in our gas brick oven. Whatever you decide, our wait staff will take care of you.

Thirsty? We offer soft drinks, ice tea and coffee. We have a variety of domestic, micro and draft beers on tap. If that isn’t your drink of choice, order a glass of wine or cocktail from one of our friendly bartenders.
We are a family friendly venue with a casual, but classy atmosphere. You can dress up or come in your favorite team t-shirt and jeans. 

We hope to see you soon!
