Description

The Milwaukee Road distinguished itself with the depots it built across its great rail empire, which eventually covered 13 states. Some depots were designed by such renowned architects as Frost and Granger and Frank Lloyd Wright. All were built on the belief that providing good housing for agents would ensure quality, lifelong employees. Milwaukee Road Depots features historic photographs that span from the smallest country stations to the grandest of the grand and everything in between. Includes popular stations in Milwaukee, Butte, Montana, Owatonna, Minnesota, and the widely recognized Wausau, Wisconsin Milwaukee Road Depot.
