Historic Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Depot Museum and Visitors Center

historic depotThis Depot, originally dedicated on October 23, 1914, was built in the likeness of the original C&NW Depot in Chicago, IL. Passenger trains serviced this depot until early 1950's.

In 2002, the city of Redfield received a matching Federal Grant and began restoring the Depot to its original grandeur. Today, thanks to so many area families, everyone can enjoy the railroad items, model trains, engines and artifacts depicting the early days of the railroad.
