The city applied for and was awarded a KDOT Transporation Enhancement Grant for the restoration of the depot. Emporia Construction and Remodeling was awarded the bid and completed construction on June 15, 2015. The City Office relocated to the depot and is located in what was the original office in August 2015. There are public restrooms, a waiting room/meeting room, and railroad museum. Railroad artifacts and memorabilia are being accepted.
The city is still seeking funds for the restoration of the freight room and a portion of the baggage room. Please send your tax deductible donation to: City of Strong City,
