National Historic Cheesemaking Center: Day the Monroe depot was saved
Photo supplied by the National Historic Cheesemaking Center
Crowds lined the streets and pigeons followed as the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railroad depot left its home of 105 years, making its way to the current location on the corner of Wisconsin 69 South and 21st Street. The depot is shown rounding the corner at the intersection of 14th Avenue and 19th Street. Pursuing a vision, members of Historic Monroe saved the depot after purchasing the structure for $1 from the Department of Transportation and $1 for the property from the City of Monroe.
