Newark History Museum to Open Sundays in Old Railroad Depot

In a continuing effort to share Newark’s past, the city’s Historical Society is opening the Newark History Museum on a regular schedule.   Until recently the Society had a successful storefront museum on Main Street, which contained informative and attractive displays, and grabbed attention from the college town’s lively downtown crowd.

They’ve now returned to their headquarters, which is located in the historic 1877 train station on South College avenue near the former Chrysler plant. The museum will be open on Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. through November 28th.  Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

A photographer captured the old Newark Depot on a snowy winter day, Feb. 14, 1899.  Several passengers wait for the next train, while workmen clear the station of snow.
