The museum complex comprises the original Stone Lake SOO Line depot, a 1913 SOO Line caboose and the original 1926 Stone Lake Town Hall. Exhibits include:The museum & depot house many artifacts from Stone Lake's rich history. In 2010, the museum added on with the 1926 Town Hall and another addition called Preservation Hall. A complete history can be viewed and read in the Historical Album located at the Historical Museum in Stone Lake. A special exhibit is the 1913 Soo Line Railroad caboose acquired in June 2009, from the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This crew caboose is located on a special rail line built on the depot/museum site by a local railroader, and has been totally restored inside and out. Visitors of every age are able to go inside the caboose, climb into the cupola and, in their mind's eye, take a ride back in time to experience the life our early railroad workers must have experienced. A special video can be viewed to show visitors the life of the earliest railroaders, and another video shows the actual arrival and placement of the caboose on the rail line at our depot/museum.
