Community Open House changes times for Big Boy’s arrival


On Monday August 23, 2021, the Cane River National Heritage Area and Cane River Creole National Heritage Area announces updated the time of their Community Open House at the Texas and Pacific Railway Depot to 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to coincide with the changed arrival time of Big Boy No.4014 which will now be arriving at 3:15 p.m.

The community open house and listening session is part of a public input and interpretive project between the park and heritage area to identify stories, memories, and messages from community members that should be presented to visitors at the Depot. Staff from Cane River Creole National Historical Park and Cane River National Heritage Area will be onsite to offer tours, junior ranger activities and engage with visitors at the Depot.
