Station. Heritage Junction - Death Poker Table, Movie Train

Heritage Junction is a collection of buildings, in various stages of restoration, with historical significance to the community of Santa Clarita.

The center point of the junction is the Saugus Train Station, the first building moved by the historical society, housing a museum highlighting the history of the Santa Clarita Valley. Inside you will find the collection of knick knacks and memorabilia includes a table that was supposedly the table Wild Bill Hickok was sitting at when he was shot, an Indian Drum made by Young Osceola (ostensibly the World's Largest) and the Trunk used to carry Buffalo Bill Cody's gold-plated revolvers. These were all collected from a tourist trap in Santa Clarita that went out of business in the '80s.

The train station has been featured in a number of films, inducing a film by Frank Sinatra called "Suddenly," which also featured most of Downtown Newhall, and the most recent big budget movie, "The Grifters." Another item of interest in the Junction is the Mogul Engine donated to the Historical Society by Gene Autry; it also was featured prominently in many western films of Hollywood.

Not all of the buildings are open to the public, but the train station is open every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 and the first Sunday of the month four other buildings are open: the Kingsbury House, the Edison House, the little red school hose and the Ramona Chapel.
