Schedule your special event!

The Depot building and grounds are a special place to hold your events, such as weddings, receptions, parties, family reunions, or office workshops.  Inside gatherings can be held in the Waiting Room and Ticket Office downstairs or in the Upstairs Gallery that has a small kitchen adjacent.  The Depot balcony is a wonderful place from which to toss a wedding bouquet!

The outside courtyard is made of smooth, stamped concrete under a beautiful tree canopy and has ample room for tables and chairs.  The perimeter is lined with built-in wooden benches and attractive landscaping.  Adjacent to the courtyard is a lawn area that can be used separately or in conjunction with courtyard events.

The Depot is located across the alley from the Weinhard Hotel, a Victorian lodging establishment with a rooftop garden.  It is a wonderful place for honeymooners.


Both the Boldman House Museum and the Dayton Historic Depot have rotating exhibits.


  • The Boldman House: The Boldman Clock and Radio Collections on exhibit through December 2019.
  • The Upstairs Gallery at the Dayton Historic Depot: “Making an Impression:  Daily Wear in Dayton, 1890-1989.”  Drawing on the collections from the Dayton Historic Depot and the Boldman House, this year’s exhibit examines women’s daily wear over a 100 year period.  The exhibit was funded by the Warren Foundation and the Pacific Power Foundation.  Special thanks goes to Lorna Barth, Sylvia Beuhler, Christine Broughton, and Mary Luce who all donated artifacts and time to help complete the exhibit.
  • The Ticket Office and Waiting Room in the Dayton Historic Depot: “Becoming Historic Dayton.”  This exhibit shows the long and arduous process of the transformation the citizens of Dayton decided to undertake.  We went from an unimpressive, homely little town in the 1980s, to a vibrant community proud of its history and a welcoming place for visitors.
