A once forlorn and forgotten train depot has been taken over by a handful of dedicated, hard working, history loving local citizens, and it sure shows ! So thankful that the history, culture, and memories of the Kane area and people, especially the founding family, have been brought to the forefront and preserved and fleshed out by this group of passionate citizens. Just a remarkable and ever improving historic venue, serving as a meeting place, seller of locally representative artifacts, books, and memorabilia, and hub for history lovers. Their efforts have also saved the local Kane Chapel, just down the street, in conjunction with the Mormons, preserving it, saving it from water damage, and protecting it for posterity in grand fashion.

We visited when the depot had their opening night for the season. This building has been renovated to mirror its original look. There was a group performing in the back room and a lot of people brought snacks & wine. The place was packed! Many artists have their works on display and were here as well, so it was nice to meet them. The local historical society has pictures and items on display as well as books on local history for sale. A couple of men who attend these events are knowledgeable about the local history. Very friendly people...great visit!

We just happened to hear about this place and stopped to see the craft items for sale but we got a first class history lesson on Kane and its founder. The information came from a very impressive young man of about 12 or 13 years who has an incredible knowledge of the history of the area and the ability to present the information in with a passion that makes if very interesting. Our 10 minute stop turned into more than an hour because of the information provided.
