1995 – 25 years ago

The old railroad depot off Cleveland Avenue could be coming out of mothballs. The Galien village council agreed this week to contact Amtrak to see if the building is for sale, and if so, how much. If available, the village would seek a state grant to finance the purchase and convert the building into a museum. If the village can acquire the building, it can apply for a restoration grant. The depot was built in the early 1900s, and has been owned by the Michigan Central Railroad and the New York Central.
