BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont museum is celebrating the 100th birthday of its historic home.

The Brattleboro Reformer (https://bit.ly/2aVa1Oe ) reports that the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center is throwing a birthday party on Friday evening at Union Station.

The free festivities from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. will include live performances, exhibit tours and a train-shaped birthday cake. Journalist Kevin O’Conner, who helped curate an exhibit on the building, will discuss its history.

Union Station officially opened to the public in August 1916 and connected Brattleboro and surrounding towns to New York, Montreal, Boston and other cities. It no longer functions as a station, but many of the original features have been preserved or restored.

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
