The Saratoga Museum is housed in the former Union Pacific Railroad depot at 104 Constitution Ave., just across the highway from Shively Field. The Union Pacific donated a caboose in 1982 and an 85,000-pound refrigerated boxcar in 1992, and both of these stand on the museum grounds today, as does the sheep wagon commemorating the achievements of longtime sheep raiser Richard Savage and his family. The museum also has one of the state’s largest gem and mineral displays. The Saratoga Historical and Cultural Association sponsors annual summer treks to local historic places.
