An old train depot stands quietly in a park near the town of Kingston. I stopped to take a photo and that is when I read the sign telling its amazing story. The citizens were proud of their little depot, and were excited when it was completed in 1893. It put the little town on the map now that the train could stop and drop off supplies. Passengers could ride the train to the big city of Caro and beyond. Over time as cars and trucks replaced the need for trains, the little depot was dismantled and stored in a barn near Cass City. A century after it was built, it was discovered sitting in pieces in the barn in 1993. Citizens raised money and had the little depot reconstructed on this site in the park.
Next week I will be giving presentations in Caro and Lakeview Libraries. I hope you can stop by and see me.
