Itasca Historical Depot Museum to reopen with new caboose in tow
ITASCA – The 140-year-old Itasca Historical Depot Museum, the oldest publicly owned building in the village, will once again welcome visitors at the end of this month.
After an extensive two-year renovation, the former train station will celebrate its milestone birthday and the addition of a 74-year-old caboose to the museum’s collection with a grand opening event Sept. 28.
The original Itasca Train Depot was erected in 1873, after Itasca founder Elijah Smith donated his own land and $400 to build the structure. The station remained in operation until 1976.
