Trip Tips: Beat the Cold with a History Lesson at The Community Room

Think our weather has been unusual lately with all the ice and freezing temperatures? In February 1807, Henderson experienced a temperature drop of 60 degrees within 12 hours, hurricane winds, rain followed by six inches of snow, with trees cracking like gunfire and everything covered in ice. Come in out of the cold and snow and be warmed by stories of Henderson’s past at the Depot Community Room, where the trains always run on time.

The Community Room offers historical exhibits, a working train set, railroad history, Civil War and more. The Community Room also offers guided walking tours during the warmer months (April-October)!

The Community Room is located within The Depot at 101 N. Water Street on the Henderson riverfront. Hours are Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday 10am-2pm.
