When we feel that it is safe for our patrons and ourselves, we will open. If we open, the Depot will be showcasing the passage of the 19th Amendment - Women's Suffrage, which was ratified in 1920. We will be presenting an interactive telegraph, and an early radio exhibit brand new to the Depot. Bring the kids. They will find it fascinating. Some older kids may enjoy it, also.
