Railroad and Mullens Area Historic Museum
The Virginian Railway Co. Caboose #307 was restored to be used as the home of this museum. It is open to the public. The car was built in 1949. It was donated to the Chamber in 1987. After some setbacks, the caboose was moved on June 27, 1990 onto ties and rails which were original railway equipment. #307 was originally used in the Elmore train yard in Mullens. It brought up the rear of many coal trains. Items are continually added to the museum.

Several large murals may be seen around town on Howard Avenue and at the fire station.
The Virginian Mural is 20x90 feet and pictures an old Virginian Railway steam engine, #215, pulling baggage car #53, the Mail car and a passenger coach through a free standing, upsupported tunnel in west Mullens. The mural's setting is in the fall season and features typical colors for the original cars. It was painted in 1989 on a building built in 1924. Hundreds of hours were spent by volunteers helping to complete the project. Contributions are accepted at the Caboose museum for the mural's upkeep

See pictures of some of the murals, the high school and more taken from Mullens postcards.
