The Depot has undergone several alterations throughout the 20th century. However, the basic integrity of the design remains. The structure features a prominent hip roof with a deep overhang, supported by large wooden brackets. There are twenty-two windows with diamond shaped panes. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 7, 1976.
The most recent renovation to the depot took place after a fire damaged a significant portion of the building in 2008. In 2009, the depot reopened as the center for the Chamber of Commerce. Today, this depot serves as one of the town's oldest buildings and a local landmark.
