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 of Henderson's history as well as seasonal, rotating exhibits. The room is also home to a working model train display, 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, Folklife Festival, Fernwood Cemetery Walking Tour, and Spooks & Legends Walking Tour.
During the month of December our Veterans’ Christmas tree will display photos of Henderson County military veterans. To honor or memorialize a veteran on the tree, mail, email, or bring a photo of that veteran to the Depot Community Room. We will scan that photo, record the name, rank, service dates, and any additional information such as wartime service, or special honors. The photo and information will be mounted on a star and placed on the tree to be displayed through the month of December. We are open Monday-Friday 10-4 and Saturday 10-2. Email: email@example.com. Address: 101 N. Water St., Henderson, KY 42420.
