Developing Educational Programs

The BHC committee has identified several areas to focus on for educational programs. These include:

  • History programs  for school aged children
  • Programs on natural resources around the depot
  • Programs on the Houghton Depot and the railroad era
  • Programs on interviews of local residents
  • History programs on indigenous people and  early settlers 
  • Programs on the Houghton Village and  the Finn Settlement
  • Programs on farming, fishing, brownstone quarrying, logging
  • Various programs on the arts: photography, painting, etc.
  • An inviting place for small weddings.

This is a suggested list. It will be adjusted as programs are developed and become available. The complete restoration of the Houghton Depot is projected for 2021.
