In the Summer of 2020, the first Courageous Creatives Cohort of 23 young people was formed. The foundation of the project’s design was to listen, learn, unlearn and devise a creative strategy to engage the facility of creative skill and talent. Empowering these voices served multiple purposes and in turn had a major reciprocal effect.
The Gold Coast Railroad Museum is dedicated to preserving, exhibiting, and operating historic equipment. It houses over 40 historic rail cars including Presidential Rail Car 'Ferdinand Magellan,' and Florida East Coast Steam Locomotive #153.
Founded in 1957, GCRM was built on the former Naval Air Station Richmond (NASR), the second largest WWII airship base in the United States. With over three miles of tracks, the NASR was an ideal place to build a railroad museum. The Gold Coast Railroad Museum became one of the three official Florida State Railroad Museums in 1984.
