LISBON -- Lisbon’s history will be the focus of the St. Lawrence County Historical Association’s 65th annual meeting at the Lisbon Wesleyan Church Fellowship Hall, 48 Church St., Saturday, Nov. 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The meeting will begin with a short business meeting, followed by a buffet lunch at noon.

Pre-registration is required for lunch at 386-8133 or info@slcha.org. At 1 p.m. Lisbon Town Historian Nancy LaFaver will give a tour of the Lisbon Depot Museum.

The Lisbon Depot Museum is housed in the old Rutland Railroad Station in Lisbon and preserves the town’s agricultural, railroad, and social history. The depot was built in 1930, and was the second reconstruction of a railway depot at Lisbon by the Rutland Railway. The railroad closed the depot in 1961 and it now houses the Town of Lisbon’s museum.
