Historic Train Depot Returning to Fort Pierre
FORT PIERRE – A historic train depot is returning to Fort Pierre.
KCCR and KGFX report that the train depot will return to the town after being used as a storage building on a Mud Butte area ranch since the 1960s.
The depot was built in 1906 and used by the Chicago and NorthWestern Railroad system. It was moved to the ranch after Shirley Miller had purchased it. Miller recently gave permission to send the depot back to Fort Pierre to be used as a tourist and historic attraction.
The depot is scheduled to arrive in Fort Pierre sometime early next week.
