Solon Mills Depot revealed

You are here

Despite the best efforts of the W.A. McConnell Foundation the circa 1902 Solon Mills train station – formerly the Depot Restaurant, was scheduled to be demolished April 5 – but not before volunteers gathered Monday morning to save some of the original architectural components – including the siding, windows and trim ... not to mention stools from the diner. Special thanks to volunteers Mike Evans, Peter & Austin Fonk of Keltic Carpentry, and Cindy Skrukrud, Peter Gusie & Tanya Fisher Nixon of the W.A. McConnell Foundation for all of their efforts, and the property owners for their patience during this yearlong process to relocate the building.  At least parts of it will live on.
