Have you ever taken a field trip with your class or family to the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum? The building was designated a National Historic Landmark Monday, recognized by the National Park Service as the best remaining example of a World War Two Canteen. The depot sat on a major train line during that war, helping millions of service men and women to cross the United States. Dennison was the water stop between Pittsburgh and Columbus, giving soldiers five minutes to grab a sandwich and a cup of coffee. From 1942 until 1946, nearly 4,000 volunteers served meals around the clock to more than one million soldiers who visited the depot's canteen.
