The Depot does not have regular visiting hours for the inside, but the Memory Walk and Garden are always accessible. Private visits and tours of the Evelyn Lahman History Museum and the historically-restored inside are welcomed, and can be scheduled by emailing us your contact information, or by calling Michael at 276-206-2048. 

Please note that the Depot and Museum are open during Farmers Market hours during the summer. The 2021 Farmers Market has not been scheduled, but historically has been on Wednesday afternoons from June through September. Check back here, or visit our Facebook Page for updated information.
