NEWBERN BOARD OF MAYOR AND ALDERMEN

The Newbern Depot had a single-day, non-downtown-event opening of 137 people, on Sunday, March 15. The museum is typically open the first Saturday of the month, but weather prevented that from happening in March. Therefore, a secondary date of Sunday, March 15th was used. Normally the depot museum will see from 10 to 20 people on any given Saturday, when there is no other event going on in downtown Newbern.

news-depotThe Newbern Depot Museum got off to a very good start, the first Saturday, in February, with 37 people coming by to visit. Among the new items was a new train board for the Lionel trains. This was constructed by city workers in January. The new board is 16 feet long, as compared to 12 feet long with the original board. The width remains five feet wide. The new board sits about 10 inches higher than the original, and now stands above the display cases. Here's thanking the city workers who constructed this, and we appreciate the job.
