What's happening with the Depot? Who is running the Depot? Are they still in need of volunteers?

That is not an easy question to answer but in a nut shell: Bureaucracy. The Federal grant for the restoration of the Depot is 9 years old (not a typeO) Restoration started in 2009 was to be completed by June 2010. The grant ran out of money September 23, 2010. Contractor then vacated the property and the living quarters upstairs was not finished. Email from the City, Fernley Preservation Society would have a CofO to open it as a Museum by the end of the year. We are now more than 23 days into 2011 and still no CofO or word from the City when it might be forthcoming. We have not been told what the hold up is. Yes, FPS is still managing the property. Yes, we are looking for volunteers. It will be an enormous job cleaning up the grounds, recording, restoring and placing artifacts in the Depot and Old School House. Once finished it will truly be the Jewel of downtown Fernley and they have wasted 10 years. Hope this answers your questions. Sorry the nut shell turned into a coconut.

What ever happened to the item stolen from the depot mentioned on the depot website? Was it ever recovered? Never heard anything on the news or read anything in the paper.

None of the items stolen from the Fernley Depot during restoration were ever recovered.
