Project Overview

Professional planning services were used to assist with the development of the Baudette Depot Historic Project to include preservation and display of Canadian National Railway artifacts, historical documents and various other memorabilia in a self-guided interpretive exhibit highlighting the importance of railway transportation in Minnesota's Canadian border history and settlement of the region. The Project will provide visitors an opportunity to learn not only about the intrinsic historic value that the depot had in the community's settlement but also how the railroad was an integral part of the entire transportation history of the area, of how it played a chapter in the lives of hundreds of early immigrants and settlers.
