The Depot Community Room will present their Early American Christmas exhibit in the month of December, including a special day-long celebration December 11th from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
This year, the staff has turned a room in the building into a pioneer cabin. (Photo shows part of the display set up.) Decked out with traditional holiday garb and several antique items, visitors can step back in time and learn how families during the Colonial period would have spent their holidays. The room contains many artifacts, including a family Bible, a hand-strung bed, quilts, tobacco twists and much more.
Those interested in enjoying a more interactive display can visit on December 11th. On this day, the staff will dress in period costumes, and there will be several activities, as well as a reading of “The Christmas Carol.”
Located in the heart of Henderson, The Depot is a replica of the original train depot built in 1901 and stands as an example of the city’s commitment to preserving the past while embracing the future.
