The loading dock at the old Heflin railroad is rotting away. The station has been home to the museum for the past 5 yrs. Larry Stephens says the wood, estimated to be at least 90 years old, was already beginning to rot when he moved into the depot to set up the museum. Stephens said this has been a bad year for business in terms of revenue. "The recession is killing us just like everywhere else, and there is no money in my budget for even basic repairs. If things don't get better, I'll be forced to close for good at the end of this year."
