Info Depot Center

Info Depot Center

The Info Depot Conference Center is a multiple phase historic railroad themed project where we prepared a comprehensive site plan which integrates a relocated & renovated small town railroad station building, a Northern Pacific Railroad dining car, a protective canopy for an historic Georgia & Florida Railroad business car, a 1909 Central of Vermont wood caboose and appropriately themed improvements to the main building’s existing facade. The station building, originally serving the Toledo & Ohio Central Railroad (now NS), was disassembled and moved in pieces from its 100 year location in Brice near Reynoldsburg, Ohio and reassembled and rehabilitated to become a 55 person capacity state-of-the-art conference-meeting center for the Info Depot. A period railroad theme was maintained throughout. The ceiling is original red pine bead board and the floors hand-hewn hickory.

The station building rehabilitation demonstrates the situation found with many historic structures where they may be an iconic building of great imagery and romance but may be found in poor structural condition. The deteriorated wood frame of this building served chiefly as a pattern for the extensive rebuilding necessary to prepare it for its next 100 years of use.
