The City of Ashford Renovates 100-Year-Old Building

Ashford Train Depot
By  | 

It's been 20 years in the making, and now the city of Ashford has restored an old train depot.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Thursday for the facility.
The depot was built in the 1800s.

The city was able to obtain a $700,000 grant to fund the project. They'll use the building as a museum, community center, and banquet hall.

Officials say what makes it so special, is they were able to salvage old records that were left behind, when the train depot closed in the late 1970s.
