Giveaway Winner and Farmers Market
Well I will take care of business first. The winner of the snap sack is Fiesta of Quilting Fiesta from Florida. Send me an email with your address and I will send you your complete kit in a sack.
One of my daughters lives in Starbuck WA which is close to Dayton WA and they had a car show this last weekend, so I went down Friday evening and Saturday my daughter and I along with a friend had a booth at the Farmers Market. I took my camera but forgot to take pictures. The market is in a perfect spot under the trees in the court yard of the historic railroad depot. Doesn't that look like a great place to spend the morning.
The Dayton Depot is the oldest surviving train depot in the state. It was originally built in 1881 and designed in the Stick/Eastlake style. The structure has been altered only slightly in over 125 years of its existence.The Depot Collection includes over 2,500 photographs from early settlement history that document county life from 1860-1950. They are all catalogued and available for research.
In addition, the Depot collects furniture from Baileysburg, Dayton's only furniture factory, memorabilia relating to local business and events, and objects and memorabilia from its Oregon Railroad and Navigation Co. and Union Pacific history. This is supplemented with clothing and artifacts from local pioneer families.
It has been beautifully restored and is now a museum. Revolving exhibits are featured in the upstairs gallery. The Dayton Depot is listed on the Local, State, and National Registers of Historic Places.
Location: 222 E. Commercial Street, Dayton, Washington
