Stanhope Depot and Museum Fund

The  Stanhope Depot and Museum Fund will initially support moving the 140-year-old train depot, located on a farm north of Stanhope, back to town. Once this is completed, donations will be used for maintenance and sustainability of the depot.

The historic depot has been cared for the last 40 years by the Carlson family who live north of Stanhope. The depot is in good condition and a new roof was put on the structure several years ago by the Carlson family.

The plan is to move the depot next summer.


Donate to one of the funds managed under the
Foundation and support Hamilton County.
