Though it has seen a lot of change over the years, the building maintains its historic charm.

The community has banded together, and over a 14 year process, the railroad depot spot is now a historic bed and breakfast.

Historian, Jolene Fondy, said locals and visitors can experience life in the Harvey House as it was in the 1920’s.

There are four rooms available for accommodations that include period-correct furniture and decor.
