The Depot's Policy on Covid-19 

If you plan to hold an event at the historic Depot in the near future, we ask that you adhere to state guidelines and restrictions as they occur. Those laws may be found at Michigan.gov. Please use common sense and make sure your guests are healthy, practice social distancing, do not crowd the facility (limit guests who are there at one time) and encourage wearing masks as is now the law in indoor spaces, except for eating and drinking. Wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer, and encourage your guests to do so.  If we all do our part, it will hopefully help return our lives to normal once again. Thank you for your cooperation.

Response & Guidelines to Rentals during Covid 19, 

and to see how the Depot was used during this pandemic!

We now offer PayPal as a payment option.

If you decide to use this feature, you will need to add 3% to cover their charges.

We wish we could absorb the expense but as a non-profit we can not at this time.

If you are paying the refundable deposit, it would be $155.00 and you'd get $150 back after your rental. 

If you are paying a weekend rental it would be $412.00 or weekday it would be $206.00. 

If paying the full amount for a weekend rental, your charge would be $570 and you'd get $150 back.

Full amount for a weekday would be $360 and again you'd get $150 back. 

We anticipate using PayPal when time is short and there's no time for a check to clear.

Please consult rental agent Marsi Darwin for our account address.
