Located on the riverfront in downtown Henderson, The Depot Community Room stands as an example of the city's commitment to preserving the past while embracing the future. The building is a replica of the 1901 train depot.
We feature images and artifacts on Henderson's history as well as seasonal, rotating exhibits. The room is also home to a working train set, an original John James Audubon print and W.C. Handy's trumpet and sheet music.
Henderson's history comes alive during fun and interactive events throughout the year. Major events include monthly walking tours, River Heritage Day, Folklife Festival, Fernwood Cemetery Walking Tour, and Spooks & Legends Walking Tour.
... Kentucky's most decorated woman during World War I was Henderson native Mary Willie Arvin. Can you name the seven other nurses from Henderson who served during World War I?
... We will scan your veteran's picture, and place it on a star along with rank, branch of service, dates served, and any special campaigns served in. The star will be placed on the Veterans' Christmas Tree. The only requirement is that the veteran was born in or lived in Henderson County at some time in his/her life.
Visit us at the Depot to see more stories of our veterans!
