Renovations begin for museum in Manila
Renovations have begun to the 3,000 square foot building that will soon house a museum on main street in Manila. The former Miranda's building located across the street from the Depot Museum will serve as an extension for the historical displays of the area.
The present museum (the original train depot) will be restored as it was when the trains ran through Manila and continue to be part of the museum tour.
The museum committee is working on turning the building into a museum complete with a media room for visitors to enjoy. Committee members are excited about the possibilities of having the extra space.
The train depot building was restored several years ago and turned into a museum and was soon filled to capacity.
The committee is working on the building but they welcome volunteers, ideas and items that are part of the area's history.
