Fundraising for the depot restoration continues, and as you consider tax-deductible contributions before December 31st, please keep the Allen County Historical Society’s efforts to save this important part of our history. We are a 501(c)3 organization so your contribution is 100% tax deductible. We have applied for federal and state grants, some of which require matching funds. Your help will be greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged in the restored depot. Just write depot project in the memo line.
In addition to the depot restoration, we are investigating the possibility of purchase, loan, or donation of railroad equipment, possibly a caboose or locomotive as outdoor exhibits. We have found that one of the last locomotives that serviced Scottsville still exists. Rails, ties, and fencing have already been donated. And we are searching for items and stories that may be related to the L&N, especially those related to the Scottsville branch.
