‘Depot Day’ season opener planned for Saturday, May 1
Boscobel Depot Museum
Boscobel Depot Days
About half a dozen volunteers with Friends of the Depot turned out last Thursday afternoon to spruce up the museum in anticipation of its May 1 season opener. Karen Leonard, Sara Strang and Eldora Whiteaker (l-r) are seen working on the Northwest Telephone Company exhibit. The Farmer’s Market next door will also be opening for the season on May 1.

BOSCOBEL The Boscobel Depot Museum Committee had its first meeting on March 31 to make plans for Saturday tours May 1 through October and a big Depot Day on Saturday, June 19. 

The Museum was not open in 2020 due to Covid so there was a lot of cleaning and planning to be done.  Two afternoons of cleaning were planned and accomplished with the help of community volunteers.  Some of the displays were reviewed, re-arranged and items added. The updates and rearrangements will offer more enjoyment to its viewers. 

There are several updates in the Depot Park area, with several of the overgrown shrub areas removed and new plantings to come.  The back deck, which was in bad shape, has been replaced so the music for the Farmers’ Market will have a stage area.

Depot Day

Many plans have been made to have a big Depot Day on June 19.  Since it is on Father’s Day weekend, the theme will be our Founding Fathers. The first and early families will be displayed and local history “buffs” will have displays. There will be walking tours of historic downtown Boscobel and movies at the Blaine Theatre showing a 1936 film of Boscobel and the Fire Ball Run. Other details and items will be made public as they are planned. 

We do have only nine bricks left for sale to complete the Gazebo.  There is a separate ad in this paper for details.
