Historic depot in the East Village of Des Moines

DMHT’s first project is an historic depot in the Historic East Village of Des Moines. This project will be funded through a variety of programs available for historic buildings and individual fundraising activities to create a home for Des Moines’ heritage organizations such as the Des Moines Historical Society, Historic East Village, the Des Moines Rehabbers Club and many others.

About The Depot Project

The former depot will be known as the Des Moines Heritage Center and will feature a new building constructed next to it which will operate as an event center.

This center will be available for rentals and for historical organizations to provide educational and cultural programming.

This property will become the first leveraged property to establish a line of credit for the funding of purchase and rehabilitation of other historic properties.
