Which Room Was This In the 1902 Milwaukee Road Depot?
This picture shows the condition of one of the rooms in the 1902 Milwaukee Road Depot after it was moved to the Caledonia Historical Village. Do you recognize it? The Caledonia Historical Society is organizing a Learning Center so that local Caledonia history can be shared throughout the community, and this now totally renovated room will be a part of the Learning Center.
