22B Wednesday, May 2, 2001 Lassen News Bu,,e,,n, IB Lassen Land and Trails Trust recently received $28,250 to construct and in- stall new exhibits in the Wait- ing Room of the Susanvill Railroad Depot Museum and Visitor Center. Lassen Park Foundation, the T.B. Walker Foundation and the USDA Forest Service Rural Commu- nity Assistance Program pro- vided funding for the project. Funding will be used to con- struct and install eight graph- ic panels and 100 "timeline tiles" in the old "Waiting Room" on the western side of the building. Promotional Products, Inc. (PPI) designed the panels in 1999 to tell the story of the Fernley and Lassen Railroad and the im- pact that the railroad had on the area. The timeline tiles will complement the graphic panels by summarizing im- portant local events from the 1800's and placing them in the context of national occur- rences. The railroad and the rail- pulted Westwood into exis- road logging industry cata- tence and changed the face of Susanville forever. Su- sanville's early roots as "Rooptown" began as a trad- ing post along the Noble Emi- grant Trail. Ranching and farming comprised the com- munity's agricultural econo. my. The new exhibits will tell the story of Susanville from the early to mid-1900's, with panels entitled: "No Place' on a Wagon Trail," "Susanville Waits for a Railroad," "The Railroad Whistles Through," "The Original Susanville De- pot," "Susanville is on the Map!" and "Prosperous Decades." Improving interpretive dis- plays at the Susanville Rail- road Depot is a primary goal for Lassen Land and Trails Trust, which purchased the historic building in 1987. Restoration of the building was completed in the early 1990's and the Depot opened as a visitor center and museum in June 1994. In 1996, the Trust hired Robert Dahl to de- velop an Interpretive Plan for stalled in the] the Depot. this July. PPI used the themes devel- Railroad aped in the Interpretive Plan for business to design interpretive exhibits through that are beautifully displayed The Trust in a 1998 Graphic Design by school Package.
