The Tomball Depot Museum closed April 15 to undergo a series of repairs and renovations, Public Works Director Drew Huffman said via email.

“The repairs and renovations consist of removing all lead and asbestos materials [and] replacing the materials with [something similar] to keep the aesthetic look and feel,” Huffman said. “Also, the roof is being repaired and replaced.”

The cost of the repairs and renovations is $150,000 and was included in the city’s fiscal year 2022-23 budget, Huffman said.

“The need for the project came from our annual facility inspections that found that the windows, siding and roof were in need of repairs or replacement,” Huffman said. “The Depot will look exactly like it does today before renovations; the project will just upgrade and extend the life of the Depot Museum.”

Huffman said there is no reopening date yet.
