The historical restoration of FREIGHT was a team effort by the Anderson family. Architects Nan and Dave Anderson considered every structural detail and used archival photos to rehabilitate the freight depot. It’s full of special touches like restoring the original windows and preserving the graffiti in the walls. Our goal was to honor and capture the past, while creating an elegant space for the future. The earliest recorded date on the building is an etching of Oct 4, 1884, most likely carved by a former railroad worker. In the 1900s, it was used by Smith Lumber Company for storage.
The freight depot was shut down in 2012 and reopened by the Anderson
family in 2017 as a community gathering space and wedding venue.
