Local history can easily be forgotten over time, but the Heritage Depot Potyze is a building that takes great cares to ensure that the people and events of the past are not forgotten. The depot holds diverse local heritage and art collections, with objects that range from old postcards, memorabilia, and militaria to paintings and even archaeological finds.
Part of the allure of the depot is precisely in the fact that the building doesn't stand out in any striking way. Though the calico brick facade is certainly pleasing to look at, it's not something that pulls people in emphatically. Considering that the depot is packed full of truly fascinating heritage, that interplay between exterior and interior lends the complete building a sense of mystery.
