The Franklin County Historical Society’s caboose at the Old Depot Museum has been a target for vandals.
The caboose for the second time in the past year was vandalized this week, Diane Staresinic-Deane, manager of the museum, 135 W. Tecumseh St., Ottawa, reported to the Ottawa Police Department.
“Someone broke into the caboose through the floor,” Staresinic-Deane said Friday. “They got in and shattered out a window. That is, as far as we can tell, the extent of the damage.”
She said the damage is covered by insurance and workers were repairing the caboose Friday morning.
