A man with family ties to the railroad has donated land worth $4.25 million to the National Railroad Museum.
A museum news release says Allan Riley of New York donated the land in Ashwaubenon that is currently leased to Super Valu Stores for warehouse purposes.
The museum says Riley's father formerly worked for the Big Four railroad in Indianapolis. He ended his career in the company's senior management and had an office in New York's Grand Central Terminal.
Museum executive director Michael Telzrow says the contribution helps insure the viability of the museum.
Museum officials did not say in the news release what they would do with the land.
