Although the S’mores event has to be cancelled because of the weather, this week workers are separating the 1888 depot from the 1944 addition in preparation for moving the 19th century portion. According to Alice Thomas, chair of communications of Save the Northfield Depot, “We will notify the public when the move date is final.”

While funds have been raised to move the historic depot to the new location, SND is now raising funds for the renovation.
