Mena / KCS Historic Depot & Museum

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.
