5-23-14 Depot Update CCRDSC_1050By Steve Landon

For over 70 years the Clare Depot occupied this site at the junction of two important railroads before being relocated 900 feet down the street across from the Clare Castle Apartments on April 22nd.

Until May 21st all that remained at the site was the cement and brick pad where the depot once stood and the platform where passengers once stood awaiting the next train and freight was unloaded, now it all just a memory.

Bolle Contracting of Clare went to work Wednesday clearing the remains to make room for possible future use by the railroad. Down the street depot volunteers have been busy getting the building ready for future use.
