Tour a former railroad depot with telegrapher’s equipment, railroad lanterns, timetables, freight wagon and other historical memorabilia and Village of Gresham history on display. The depot opened in 1907. The railroad was known as the Wisconsin Northern or by its nickname, “The Whiskey Northern”. In 1921, the railway was sold to the Soo Line Railroad. A mix of freight and passenger trains ran daily. At that time, all freight came in by rail and draymen would deliver the freight from the depot to the various businesses. In 1963 the depot closed and in 1974, the Gresham Women’s Club and the former depot agent, Russell Ferrall and his wife, Grace were instrumental in getting the depot moved to its present site.
