The kiosk at the trailhead is ready for action! One side displays the current RTWC map board. A second side shows the story of Orrville and its railroad history. This is of special significance because the kiosk is located near the Orrville Historical Museum, which was once a restaurant and boarding house, and the Orrville Railroad Heritage Depot, which was a central part of the railroad scene. We are delighted people will stand and read this history in the very spot it was taking place. The third side will be used for changeable current information.
We are grateful to the Orrville Rotary Club for their donor support in making the kiosk a top notch structure, to Kent Baker of Engineering Associates for the design, to Keith Workman for designing and building the roof "spider," to Edwards Roofing for the shingles, and to LetterGraphics Sign Company for their design and production of the history panel.
The Heartland Trail project of building the restroom facility, the kiosk and the first mile will be recognized at the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting as part of their 2016 Community Investments Recognition.
