HELP US SAVE THE DEPOT
The Rural Retreat Depot was built in 1856 by the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad as a shipping point for local produce. In 2011 the Rural Retreat Depot Foundation purchased the Depot in a sad state of disrepair, with a mission to restore it and then manage it as a history museum and regional event space. 

As of 2017 the foundation and roof have been fully replaced and the exterior restored to its 1940's look. This work has been accomplished by many hours of locally donated labor and through generous private donations and grants. As early as 2013 the Depot started to be used for events.


OUR WORK IS NOT DONE AND WE NEED YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT
The Depot exterior was first priority in order to halt further degradation. Next, we restored and updated the interior to provide an 80-seat auditorium and event room, a 20-seat lecture/meeting room, a two-room museum, and a prep kitchen/storage room. These rooms became available to the public at our Grand Opening on October 14, 2017.
Our work is not finished, so we need your continuing financial support. Remaining on our to-do list are the audio-visual systems to complete the theatre/auditorium area, the interactive kiosks that will bring the museum to life, and the exterior landscaping. To find out how you can help please turn to our DONATE or DONATE A BRICK pages.
