AARP members and guests offered free tour of Dennison Railroad Depot Museum -- a National Historic Landmark

Escape to Dreamsville, USA — as Dennison was nicknamed during WWII — and experience a simpler, happier time in our nation’s history.

AARP members and their guests are invited to the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum on Thursday, November 19, at 1 p.m. for a free tour of this National Historic Landmark. An additional tour will be offered at 3 p.m. if the first tour fills up.

According to Ohio history buffs, the Dennison Railroad Depot is the most significant remaining example in the nation of a World War II railroad canteen. The beautifully restored Pennsylvania Railroad Depot, built in 1873, contains an orientation theater where visitors will get the opportunity to view a short film about the depot’s history. This presentation is followed by a guided tour of the museum and its five railroad coaches attached to the building – including a rare WWII hospital car.

The depot is located at 400 Center Street, Dennison, Ohio 4462.  Light refreshments will be offered after the tour, as will information alerting you to the latest holiday giving scams. The tour is free to AARP members and their guests, but reservations are required.

RSVP today and don’t miss this opportunity to journey into the past to an important time in America’s history. RSVP by calling toll-free 1-877-926-8300 or register online by clicking here on Dennison Railroad Depot Museum.
