Our Purpose

The purpose of the volunteer Tracks Across Borders board is to maintain, market and promote the Byway as an interactive museum over the pathways of the past so that travelers can develop an understanding and appreciation of the rich railroad, cultural, historical, recreational, agricultural, and natural features of the Byway that have endured and continue today.

Additionally, the board strives to make navigation easy and exceed visitor expectations, encourage and promote responsible tourism that helps our communities and businesses along the Byway thrive.
