Hearne Depot takes a gander at graffiti

On Friday December 19 and Saturday the 20, Hearne Depot Museum held an open house. The historic Hearne Depot is still a resting place for the weary and intrepid traveler and locals alike. With a fare of punch and cookies, The Green Thumb Garden Club welcomed visitors from near and far: locals Judy Werlinger visited with four of her grandchildren: County Judge-elect Charles Ellison and Hearne Councilwoman Maxine Vaughn dropped in; a family from San Antonio used the
Hearne Depot as a rest stop on their way to the Rusk Polar Express Experience; and celebrants from as far away as Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, browsed the Depot while in the area for their son’s TAMU graduation.
