Garner Depot History Museum Gets a Facelift

Garner Depot History Museum Update

 

The Garner Area Historical Society is excited to report that exterior repairs to the Historic Garner Depot are progressing at a steady pace. A new historic-style standing seam metal roof, authentic lap siding, and new historically-appropriate windows and doors are among the exterior improvements completed by the Town to date. Our circa-1900 Depot is indeed coming back to life!

After the completion of the exterior repairs, the Garner Area Historical Society will begin up-fitting the interior for use as our Garner Depot History Museum. In the meantime, members of our Board of Directors are working on cataloging and adding to the historic collection, and doing all that we can ahead of time to prepare for actually being in the Museum. 

Our Capital Campaign was temporarily halted during the Covid-19 pandemic; we are still seeking contributions toward making this Museum a reality. Funds we raise will be used for lighting, displays, display supplies, conservation supplies, interactive and electronic displays, climate control equipment, and other items for operation. All funds donated are tax-deductible to our 501(c)(3) organization. Please join with us to make the Garner Depot History Museum a true "gem" of Garner.
