In October 2022, a restaurant located inside a historic train depot closed after the city of Minburn failed to reach an agreement on a new lease with the previous owner. That's when Michael Roberts stepped in and offered to buy the Nineteen14.

"I just love old historical buildings, so this kind of just fell in my lap," he said of the restaurant that sits along the 89-mileRaccoon River Valley Trail and served as a stopping point for bikers on the route.

It was important to him that Nineteen14 remained in the name, but for legal reasons he added "Depot." "Most people call it (Nineteen14) Depot anyway," he said.
