September 10 2015 we officially dedicated the depot as a historic landmark. The Port Hope Depot restoration project is becoming a huge success due to countless hours of volunteer help and the generous donations from the local community. THANKS!

Stops along the way.

With the help of the community and sponsors, we’ve taken a once fenced off building, moved it to a stable location and restored it to nearly new. Now with further help from our volunteer staff, we’re showing the depot and talking about our history to all who pass by. Make sure to visit our photo gallery and see just how we all pitched in to make the depot a wonderful community center for all.
