Menominee depot


Menominee Depot
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Station
(aka Milwaukee Road Depot)
4th Ave and 2nd St. in Menominee, MI.



This late Victorian style train depot was designed by architect James Nettenstrom and built in 1903 as a Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Passenger Railway Station (Milwaukee Road).  The Depot is located in Menominee, Michigan’s beautiful downtown historic district near the shores of Green Bay and is listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. 

The depot is highly restorable and retains much of its original character including original windows, storm windows, woodwork, railroad safe, and much more. 

On the property, there are old railroad tracks, and below the current grade, are the original platform and brickwork. 

The building is a rectangular wooden structure and has a hip roof with a gabled center section.  Siding is pine clapboard above vertical tongue and groove pine. 

The building has over 2000 square feet of interior floor space, and approximately 500 square feet of outdoor area under the passenger pavilion.  It is centered on 1.1 acres (6 city lots +) and has ample parking area. 

The right type of business would do wonderfully in this location. It would also make a great home, or can have any of a number of uses.
