THE WATSEKA UNION DEPOT was built in 1906 and provided mail, freight and passenger services.

The Depot was closed in 1967 and was in danger of being lost forever. In the 1980s, a group of

local citizens worked for the funding to move and restore our depot.

In order to maintain the Depot's facilites, space is rented to the public. As the space is a physical

museum, certain rules must be enforced for the protection of the Depot.

1) No alcoholic beverages

2) No open flames

3) No decorations that would permanently alter the space

       (for example; tape on walls  or floors that would damage paint when removed)

4) A damage deposit of $100 required
