This caboose is one of 26 known wooden "Union Pacific" cabooses still in existence in the United States and is the only one known of in Kansas.
Following a complete restoration the caboose celebrated its 100th birthday with a party on June 6th. Ribbon cutting birthday cake, clowns, games, fun and food. It is one of the most interesting structures to be found on the grounds of the Hodgden House Museum Complex. A must see on your next visit.
