Boones Mill Depot Deadline Extended

Boones Mill, VA - Preservationists hoping to save the historic Boones Mill train depot have been given more time to prove they can raise the funds needed.

Norfolk Southern, which owns the building, has told the group they now have until October 15th to make real progress.

The earlier deadline was set for Sunday.

The group's leader says they believe they can raise $75,000 by that date to prove their intent.

Norfolk Southern wants to demolish the building because of concerns over liability.
