Seneca White Deer, Inc recently committed $500 in matching funds to the Romulus Historical Society to place historical markers at the former Depot.
Seneca Meadows quickly took up the challenge and matched SWD’s donation with $500 of their own. Additional funding from the Seneca County Board of Supervisors and private donations made the markers possible. Exact locations are still to be determined, but one will be located on Route 96A, while the other will be on Route 96 near the Main Entrance to the Depot.
Seneca County Historian, Walter Gable, will present the third in a series of programs marking the 70th anniversary of the Depot in Hadley Hall on the former Willard Psychiatric Center in Willard, NY at 2 PM, Sunday, September 18.
This program will focus on what has happened at the Depot in the decade since its closing and the prospects for future of the 10,000 acre facility. Participants will include Dennis Money, President of Seneca White Deer, Inc and Robert Aronson, Executive Director of the Seneca County Industrial Development Agency, which is responsible for developing the former Depot’s land. There will also be presentations by representatives of organizations currently operating on the former Depot — Finger Lakes Technology Group and the Advantage Group. County Historian Gable invites anyone with stories or information about the Depot and its history to come to the meeting and share with the attendees.
