A drive is underway to preserve the old train station in downtown Kent.
Interested residents are invited to a meeting at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Kent Historical Museum, 855 E. Smith St.
The Kent Downtown Partnership and the Greater Kent Historical Society will host the meeting.
Several groups have expressed an interest in moving forward with discussions regarding the preservation of the train station as they search for people and resources to assist with the project, including KDP and the city of Kent.
Meeting leaders hope to have an update from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad as to any plans it might have about preservation of the train station.
