Jan. 25 – History of Holly Union Depot Presentation

The Holly Union Depot was built in 1886 where over time, millions of travelers wore depressions in the floor as they waited to purchase tickets. During its history, women developed a strong connection to the Depot; they distributed meals for soldiers, sent them off to war, and welcomed them home. Famed Prohibitionist Carry Nation arrived at the Depot in 1908 and was known locally for her hatchet-wielding crusades against “demon-rum” in nearby Battle Alley.

Noted local historian Joe Mishler will discuss these historical events and more at the Holly Township Library on Saturday, January 25th at 1:00 pm.
