The Waterville Railroad Depot was built in 1870 and moved to its present location in 1982. The modest museum does not maintain regular hours, but volunteers are happy to schedule an appointment to show you through the museum. We found ourselves in town on a Sunday morning and a volunteer met us about 30 minutes later. 

There are several other interesting structures nearby, which our guide showed us as well. The Opera House, Caboose Museum and Weaver Hotel are each interesting in their own right.
