We took in the RR museum to see my friend's painting which he donated several years ago and sure enough - there it was. A nice picture of the depot. Mr Moody gave us the tour and we enjoyed his stories very much. We WILL be back!

Great little museum. It doesn't take long to get through it, but it's worth the trip. It's conveniently located by the ballpark.
