Vandalia Railroad Depot
The Culver Lions lovingly restored this historic building several years ago through energetic fund raising, valuable support from the community at large, financial assistance from the Marshall County Community Foundation and other philanthropic organizations, and countless volunteer labor hours. As leaseholder, the club is the sole caretaker of this historic building and works to maintain the structure’s historical significance. It is listed in Indiana’s Historic Sites Registry and has received The Historical Landmark Award from Marshall County Historical Society.
For wonderful historical photos and writings about the depot you can visit the Culver/Union Township Library’s website at www.culver.lib.in.us.
Along with being the home of the Culver Lions’ regular meetings and our special fund raising events, the Culver Lions offers the free use of the building for various civic and charity events as a community service. The building, which includes a full service, commercial style kitchen, is also available to the general public to rent for special events such as weddings, reunions, and graduation events. The facility is smoke free and alcohol free. Reservations scheduled after July 1, 2014 will be $150/day or $75/half day plus deposit.
