Goffs Depot model completed

Report by Chris Ervin

John Harrington has completed a beautiful model of the Goffs Depot. This talented man put in nearly 400 hours constructing this large miniature over the past five months.

The model was built using historic documents and photos. It is so detailed that the roof can be lifted from the second story to reveal rooms inside.

The long, one-story freight building attached to the two-story depot had varying lengths over the years. For reasons of practicality, a shortened manifestation of the freight building was chosen for the model.

It is truly a wonderful contribution for visualizing how the finished Library will look. The model is currently on display in the Goffs Schoolhouse Museum.
