Casa de Piedra Museum

Apizaco

On Morelos avenue is a site for the better understanding of the city’s origin due to the railway route that crossed these lands. So, you shouldn’t miss visiting the Museo Casa de Piedra, on the side of the railway station. This place—conformed by the station, special services, train office, cellar and roundhouse—is also worth visiting to admire its 20s original architecture.

The 1916 building had the original function to be the Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México’ workers headquarters, but in 2001 it was inaugurated as a new museum whose purpose is for the visitor to learn about the intricate history of the railroad and Apizaco.

Among the objects on display throughout the 12 exhibition rooms, there are historical documents related to the town’s founding such as the appointment of the first mayor in 1892, the original plans for the Basilica de la Misericordia construction or the city shield designed in 1966 by the master Cutberto Escalante.
