Long Description:
The depot closed in 1976. In 1980 is was sold and moved to Thurber next to the Smokestack Restaurant, where it remained for several years. It was later bought and moved to Oakdale where the warehouse portion of the depot is now used as part of the Oakdale Smokehouse. The office portion of the depot (with ticket windows and waiting rooms) was placed in a field. In 2012, after learning the owner was willing to donate this portion of the depot and wanted Strawn to have it back, the Museum Board began raising money and planning its return.

The depot was returned to Strawn in 2014. Major repairs to the exterior were completed in 2015-2016. Interior renovations were completed in 2018. The depot is now open for tours when the museum next to it is open.
