Depot Museum

Located at 210 N Latcha St, Bellflower.

The Bellflower Depot, originally located across the street from the Bellflower Feed Mill, was moved to its current site on March 23, 1976.  Though the condition of the depot was not good when it was moved, it was beautifully restored through the efforts of local craftsmen and volunteers.  On July 3, 1976, it was dedicated as a museum.

The entrance room is primarily a meeting room for the Bellflower Genealogical and Historical Society, but also contains historical items, yearbooks from the grade school and high school, and many notebooks / scrapbooks.  The middle room remains as it was when the building was an active train depot - the station master's office - and contains the coal stove used in the office, an old barber’s chair from the barber shop that is now the Lions Café, and obituaries for those buried in the Bellflower Cemetery as well as former Bellflower residents who are buried in other locations.  The final room contains many display cases containing items related to Bellflower’s past.  This room also contains many of the high school trophies and awards that were moved to the museum when the high school was demolished.  Period clothes, sports uniforms, significant pieces of furniture, and other items with a "Bellflower connection" can also be seen in this room.

The Village of Bellflower owns the building which is managed as a museum by the Bellflower Genealogical and Historical Society.

The museum is open by appointment only.
