On the walls of the Depot as well as in cabinets and behind the Depot are numerous artifacts, pictures, paintings and other items related to railroad and Depot history. To help the visitor learn the history of a particular item or get other information about it or even see the back side or (like in the case of menus) inside it, we have a touchscreen system that allows the user to visually select any item on display from a menu and get more information on it.  The club owns most of the objects on display except for some photos and pictures which are owned by the City of Hendersonville or are on indefinite loan from club members.
