Boones Mill Gets Six Month Extension for Depot Plan
Boones Mill, VA - The Town of Boones Mill got a six month extension, from Norfolk Southern, to finalize relocation plans for the town's historic train depot.
Railroad spokesman Robin Chapman spokesman said railroad officials were "convinced the town is making good progress" on the project.
Town councilman Mike Smith says he believes the town has everything in place to save the depot.
He says a means of funding, support, and a location to move the building are now in place.
Officials hope part of that funding comes from a VDOT grant they are applying for.
