OAK HILL, WV (AP) — A group of railroad fans in Oak Hill is turning a historic train depot into a showcase for artisans.

The White Oak Chapter of the National Railroad Historical Society has scheduled a May 4 ribbon cutting for the White Oak Depot Artisan and Heritage Center.

Chapter secretary Susan Craun tells The Register-Herald that live music and artist demonstrations will be offered in the coming months.

She says 15 artists have been juried for the center's gallery so far.

Built around 1903, the former depot also is the halfway point along the White Oak Rail Trail.

Craun says the Coal Heritage Highway Authority recently awarded a $5,000 grant to help pay for a handicap accessible restroom. Additional landscaping and seating, and a dog watering station also are planned.
