And it does, we encountered friendly people throughout town as we learned what makes Fennimore special.  Train images are everywhere here, making the town’s identity.  We concentrated on Lincoln Ave, the main street  where most points of interest that we came to see are.

A new up-scale hotel and restaurant recently opened called, The Silent Woman. What a beautiful place, located in the historic Fenway House.

The Silent Woman Hotel and Lounge

The restaurant is very unique, looks like an outdoor courtyard.

We soon arrived at the Fennimore Railroad Historical Society Museum, the main reason for our visit.  For railroad buffs, a good time is in store for kids and adults. Fennimore Railroad Museum

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Friederick’s Family Restaurant. The restaurant looks like a train depot and the sign is like a railroad car.  Great food there.
