Welcome to the Dayton Historical Depot Society.

The Dayton Historical Depot Society is charged with maintaining two unique museums, as well as the Newland/Pioneer Cemetery.

The Depot and the Boldman House Museums will be closed until Columbia County enters Phase 3, and there are clear instructions from the state on how to re-open museums.  Stay well and visit us once the health emergency is over.  

One of our Lifetime Members, Susan Ankeny Little made a wonderful donation prior to the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order.  She gave the Depot Society a journal that Minnie Van Lew Moe wrote as a seventeen-year-old.  Minnie and her sister Lottie, along with about fifteen friends went camping in the Blue Mountains from June 22-28, 1894.  Minnie recorded the happenings of the week, along with two songs the group wrote, and a list of the food they ate.  Use this link to read what a seventeen-year-old found important 126 years ago.SPort of Co20041613580
