On Saturday, October 18, 2014 the Lincoln Depot Museum held its official Ribbon Cutting Grand Opening event. After ten years of persistence the museum became a reality. Through the process of obtaining the historic building in 2003, being awarded the NYS grants to first restore the exterior of the structure and then restore and adapt the interior to hold the planned museum the project kept moving forward.
In 2007 was the unveiling of artist and sculptor Rich Masolski’s life-size bronze statue of his interpretation of how President-elect Abraham might have looked when he addressed the crowd during his stop on February 19, 1861 during his Inaugural Journey from Springfield, Ill to Washington DC.
The Board of Directors of the Lincoln Depot Museum were proud to be joined by many local and NY State officials along with hundreds of residents to cut the ribbon and open the museum to the public. www.lincolndepotmuseum.org
