Restoring Cascade Street Station

The story of how this historic railroad building was brought back to life.

 

Our History

Where It All Began

In 2012 we began restoration and refurbishment of the Northern Pacific Railway Station located on south Cascade Street in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.

This is our story. 

 

“Rosie the Riveter”. During WW2 the women kept the trains running while the men were overseas fighting the war.

Baggage carts were standard equipment at all Northern Pacific terminals.

Coal fired steam locomotives required constant maintenance and cleaning.

This appears to be a Northern Pacific freight train crossing the Otter Tail River in the early 50’s.
