In light of current circumstances, the headquarters will be closed the week of April 6th through April 12th.
Our employee will be working from home but will answer emails as needed. If you need to reach us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and Tina will respond to your email.
* Some items on our calendar will be adjusted as we adapt to changes. For example, we have bumped the spring rummage sale to the Second Friday & Saturday in May; however, that may need to change again depending on circumstances. It WILL happen eventually, though! We have lots of rummage & have continued to get more dropped off this week--folks are home cleaning out!
More when we know it. Stay safe!

Two annual events in Chatsworth, sponsored by the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society, have been cancelled due to the current state of affairs, but both will be rescheduled.
Model train enthusiasts will still get a chance to participate in the Model Train Expo at the Chatsworth Depot on Saturday, September 12 rather than in April as previously announced. The Section House in City Park will also be open that day with the Depot's own Big Blue Train available to transport visitors between the two sites.
The popular Tea With Mom, normally held on Mother's Day Weekend, will be moved to the end of the year for a Christmas Tea at the Historic Wright Hotel. The date and time will be announced in the fall.
Summer Second Saturday Events at the Hotel and Depot are expected to go on as announced for June 13, July 11, and August 8 with tours and a free concert in the afternoons.
