The historical society also invites everyone to come down to the Depot on Tuesdays or Thursdays during the month of July and bring a friend to reminisce and enjoy while looking over the old yearbooks of Spottsville, Corydon, Barrett Manual Training High, Henderson City High and Henderson County High schools. The exhibit will run now through July. The historical and genealogical society is located in the Depot at First and Water Streets.
