Help us bring a unique piece of history back to life
In a local auction, longtime Garrettsville resident, Dave Wensel purchased the former Erie Railroad Depot.
The building, believed to be constructed before 1870, is 30' x 70' with a post and beam frame,
and served as the railroad’s freight depot.
Dave recruited family, friends and local craftsmen to help him disassemble the building in hopes of
resurrecting this unique piece of history at another site.
While we are in the process of researching grants and other avenues to help us reconstruct The Depot in Garrettsville, Ohio, we know that we may not be able to secure the funding or resources to do so. Therefore, we are also welcoming offers from enthusiastic individuals or companies that are interested in purchasing this building in order to reconstruct it themselves.
