Facility Rental


Host your private event at the historic Depot Art Center. Originally a train depot, this 105 year old building has unique, rustic charm and acts as a blank canvas for your special event.

The Depot Art Center is a community building. A private party or wedding hosted here means the renter is responsible for all their own catering, set-up and take-down of tables, chairs, bar(s), and/or stage. A general cleaning, including taking the trash out to the dumpsters, cleaning up any cups, napkins, plates, and so forth, is also required. A renter’s security deposit will not be returned if damage is done to the historic Depot.
