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 Dayton Historic Depot and the Boldman House Museum are open again!  As of Wednesday, August 26, the Depot is open from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.  The Boldman House is open Wednesday and Friday 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. and Saturday 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.  To accommodate health concerns of our guests and our employees, we will be managing visits a bit differently.  For a tour of either museum, call 509-382-2026 for an appointment.  Due to tight quarters in our old buildings, only one social group will be admitted at a time, and masks are required.  Once inside the building, you will be provided a self-guided tour, and a docent will be available to answer your questions.  We hope to see you soon!

 Quilt Raffle:  Hand-embroidered, king-size quilt from a pattern in the Boldman House Museum Collection.  Tickets are $5.00.  Drawing will be Dec. 7, 2020, 7:00 p.m. at the Depot “Ladies Night Out.”  You need not be present to win.  Call (509) 382-2026 or email [email protected] to purchase tickets.
