Craig Chamber of Commerce awarded $11K for Marcia Car maintenance

Christina Oxley, executive director of the Craig Chamber of Commerce, said her organization is in a unique position. “It’s not often that a Chamber of Commerce owns a historical asset,” Oxley said. “Maintaining that historical asset is kind of difficult.” The asset is the 103-year-old Marcia Car, a train car that once belonged to David Moffat, whom Moffat County is named after.
