      The Jackson County Historical Association will meet Sunday, July 31,
      2011, 2:00 p.m., at the Scottsboro Depot at the corner of Houston Street
      and Maple Avenue. Kelly Goodowens, chairman of the depot restoration
      committee, invites YOU to celebrate the 150th anniversary of
      Scottsboro's oldest brick building which is also one of only three
      pre-Civil War depots still standing in Alabama. JCHA members have been
      looking forward to this grand re-opening for almost 15 years.
      JCHA architect Lewis Robinson discovered vestiges of the original
      interior paint and used these colors to return the walls to their
      original 1860s vintage. A gasolier has been installed in the
      ticket/passenger waiting room that is much like light fixtures found in
      other depots built circa 1860. The Scottsboro Depot served as both the
      passenger and freight depot for 31 years until the separate passenger
      depot was completed in 1892.
      Now it is time to fill the depot freight room with artifacts and
      exhibits. The exhibit committee is presently searching for and
      accepting relics that relate to Scottsboro's history between 1860 and
      1890. The top priority on the "want list" is any article that will tell
      the transportation history of Scottsboro and Jackson County.
      ALSO, the committee would be happy to accept the donation of wooden
      display cases and shelves suitable for museum exhibit use.
      The JCHA Executive Board salutes all those who have worked so hard to
      make this grand re-opening possible. It is not often we (in this area)
      have the opportunity to celebrate the preservation of a building as old
      as the Scottsboro Depot. PLEASE join us to thank those who have
      labored long and hard and to view the beauty of a landmark so important
      in the early history of Scottsboro and Jackson County.
