The Dunsmuir Railroad Depot Historical Society opened the Dunsmuir Museum, adjacent to the Amtrak Depot, October 1st and October 15th. The Museum was also open October 8th for the town’s ArtWalk event.
During the October 15th opening, Lois Dewey drew the winning tickets for the Depot Society’s Annual Ticket Drawing: Rhian Morris of Dunsmuir won the “CHERRIES” quilt and M. Van Cleve of New Mexico won the “TRAINS IN THE CANYON” quilt. Thanks to all who participated in the drawing! The funds will help with the maintenance of the Amtrak Depot (the only Siskiyou County stop) and the Dunsmuir Museum.
The Dunsmuir Museum is closed for the winter months. Many thanks to our Depot Society members who have given of their time to open the Museum the 1st and 3rd Saturdays and town events this year: Hank Billings, Hazel Billings, June & Neil Chichizola, Jan Connelly, Jerry Harmon, Gene Lachawicz, Billie Mathes, Stacy & Blake Michaelsen, Marie Nagle, John Signor, Carol Skalko, Phyllis Skalko, and Rick Somers. Please email the Depot Society should you wish to volunteer at the Museum next year.
Have a great winter, and see you at the Dunsmuir Museum April 2017!
