Railroad Days At Mile Zero

Celebrate Council Bluffs’ place in history as Mile Zero for Union Pacific in this new take on an old favorite weekend! Railroad Days at Mile Zero returns on Saturday, September 21, from 9AM to 5PM. The Union Pacific Railroad Museum, RailsWest Railroad Museum, Pottawattamie Arts and Culture (PACE), the Historic General Dodge House, and the historic 100 Block of Council Bluffs are again teaming up for this annual event.

At the Dodge House
Visitors will begin their Dodge House experience at the Beresheim House, just south of the Dodge House. Here, you will enjoy an orientation video, appreciate local history displays, a gift shop, and more. Visitors are welcome to rest in the shade and enjoy affordable bottled water, hotdogs hamburgers, and chips served by the VFW Post 11355.

You will be engaged by Civil War educators, a Civil War Cannon, and a step back in time to 1869 in the home of the greatest railroad builder of all time, General Grenville M. Dodge. As you stroll through the home of General Dodge, our tour guides are there to answer any questions you may have about the house, the family, and the man himself. The basement of the house has many displays and railroad and civil war artifacts.

Passes for the family event are $20 per group, which includes two adults and unlimited children under 18. An additional adult pass can be purchased for $10. Tickets may be purchased online.
