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.
