Friends of the Burlington Depot

Don Traman was glad to see so many people visit Burlington's downtown train depot during a recent open house. The idea behind the event was to showcase plans to renovate the 72-year-old building.

Keokuk Union Depot Foundation

Current and former residents of southeast Iowa are being asked to contribute to a wide variety of projects throughout the region including efforts to restore old buildings and save historic sites.  Tri States Public Radio checked in on a few of these projects this week.

The effort to restore the Keokuk Union Depot is getting some outside help.

Jason Parrott’s guest for this week’s program was Don Traman of Burlington.  Traman is the new Chairman of the volunteer organization, Friends of the Burlington Depot.
