Train Depot Museum - Lum n' Abner

Reminiscent of the old days, you can almost hear the conductor shouting "All Aboard." Constructed during the passenger train era, this depot is rich in history and currently houses the Chamber of Commerce and a travel agency. The depot also serves as a museum with much of the area's local history inside. There is also a room showcasing Lum n' Abner memorabilia and another area showcasing the Ouachita series, which once hung in the national rotunda, of local renowned artist Monta Black Philpot. It also boasts a completely restored 1939 Dodge police car. Mena residents are very proud of the depot, which was completely restored in 1987 from donations and many volunteer hours.
