Old Depot Museum Is Full of History


he Old Depot Museum is filled with Ottawa and Franklin County history. It has so many fun facts about the history of this county. I have lived in the Ottawa area my entire life. The last time I was at this museum was when I was in elementary school!

When I recently walked in the doors of this museum, I felt like I was walking back in time. Not only because of the artifacts and photos and different pieces that are in the museum, but it brought me back to my childhood, easier and less stressful days for sure. I was happy to expose my two children to the museum today. As it’s in our hometown, we took advantage of this great place thatis right at our fingertips and within walking distance.

I urge anyone who is visiting the Ottawa area to definitely stop in and walk through the museum You will be surprised and come out with a lot more knowledge of what Franklin county history really is. Thank you, Ottawa, for keeping the Old Depot Museum for us so we can pass along your treasures to our children and generations to come.
