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



  • The Boldman House: A walk through this house museum is a journey through time. You’ll see glimpses of “life-as-it-was” from nearly every decade of the 20th century.
  • The Upstairs Gallery at the Dayton Historic Depot: “Barns of Columbia County” is a captivating journey through the agricultural heritage of Columbia County, showcasing the diverse architectural styles, historical significance, and personal stories woven into the fabric of the region’s iconic barns. From architectural enthusiasts to history buffs, this exhibit promises a unique exploration of the integral role barns have played in shaping the identity of Columbia County.
    The exhibit will be on display through December 2024.

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.
