Town Dedicates Restored Depot

Philadelphia dedicated its historic depot building in a Thursday ceremony. The project was several years in the making. Grants were used to restore the former train depot for use as a community facility.

It's now home to the Community Development Partnership, and is a meeting place for various events, and even wedding receptions.

"It brings everybody together and let's them talk about common concerns, common problems they have, and just ways to solve them," said David Vowell, president of the Community Development Partnership. "You know, if you don't talk, you're not going to be able to solve anything. We've got to be able to be together and talk and discuss so you can grow."

Vowell says the leadership through the years in Philadelphia is what led to the restoration of the building that otherwise might have been torn down.
