At Hornell Erie Depot Museum we have a fantastic group of volunteers. These gentlemen and ladies are knowlegble and have a plethera of anecdotes and information to share.

Come in and meet our great museum volunteers. 

 

Our substitutes are Kitty Giglio, William Nasca and Collette Cornish.

We are truly blessed to have these fantastic individuals volunteer at our community museum. Some of these volunteers have railroad backgrounds and some volunteer to give back to their community. But everyone living here in Hornell

has ties to the railroad in one way or another,

for we love to hear the train whistle blow

and feel the rumble of the trains passing by. 

Want to be part of our community of volunteers?

Please contact Collette Cornish at hedmny@gmail.com today.

We need your help.  Volunteers of all capacities are needed.
