We loved our visit here. The docent was gracious and knowledgeable. We are thankful that it is still available to view. Try your hand a safe cracking. They have a beautiful old safe that hasn't been opened. Who knows what may be inside.

Super historical train station depot (the oldest surviving in the state) with a good selection of interesting artifacts from the era. Docents are very knowledgable, friendly, and engaging. Check out the caboose next door. Recommended.

I was unable to go inside, my schedule did not allow it. But I saw the building at night with lights on and, also, during the day. It is a fascinating piece of history, it is the oldest train depot in Washington state.

We stopped to see the depot and noticed that it was open. It has been wonderfully preserved and filled with historic information about the area. The woman at the desk was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and we had a great conversation.
