Reading Time at Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum

Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum officials will be hosting free children’s programming with a Reading Time at the Museum with Judy Lafont, the Casey Jones Village Education Coordinator, every Wednesday morning at 10:00 am on an ongoing basis. Children pre-kindergarten to 5th grade and their parents or grandparents are welcome to attend. The hour long program includes a themed story time followed by an activity and refreshments. Guests interested in attending are asked to call the Museum to let them know how many to prepare for at 731-668-1222. The weekly program begins January 7, 2015. Casey Jones Museum launched the reading program with Lafont two years ago. She is a retired school teacher who worked in the local school system for over thirty years. Lafont began working at Casey Jones Village in 2012 and helped create the award winning reading program Casey’s Ticket 2 Fun. Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum is located at 30 Casey Jones Lane in Jackson, Tennessee in Casey Jones Village. It features the historic family home of railroad hero Casey Jones, an 8,000 square foot “Train Station” including exhibit halls, a community room for events and functions, three railroad cars and a museum store.
