All veterans are our heroes. Photos of Henderson County veterans will be displayed on the Veterans' Christmas tree, added to the Veterans display through the month of December. See submission details below.
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.
Military veterans who were born or resided in Henderson County and their friends or family members are invited to submit a photo of their veteran which will be scanned, mounted on a star along with their military service information, and placed on the tree. The tree will be on display through the month of December. Photos can be brought in to the Depot Community Room at 101 N. Water St. Monday-Friday 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday 10 am to 2 pm. A digital image can also be emailed to email@example.com. Please include the veteran’s name, rank, branch of service, service dates, and any other interesting information such as service during wars or conflicts, etc.
