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/listening tours, Bluegrass in the Park Folklife Festival, Fernwood Cemetery Walking Tour, and (new in 2019) Storytelling Festival.
This new event will feature eight storytellers, sharing true stories, from the eerie to the macabre, with a Henderson connection. Presented in The Gatsby Room at Hometown Roots Restaurant on Sat., Oct. 26 at 7 pm. Seating is limited. Tickets are $20 each, available at The Depot, 101 N. Water St., Henderson, Ky.
