Depot Museum Saline, Michigan - www.salinehistory.org

 

cabooseThe Saline Railroad Depot, Depot Museum 402 N. Ann Arbor Street, with its freight house, telegraph, and passenger facilities and up to six scheduled steam trains a day, served as a crucial economic link between Saline and the wilderness that existed along the old Sauk Trail. Without the access the Depot afforded, Saline probably would have gone the way of thousands of small midwestern towns.

Although all the original surrounding buildings have been removed, the Depot still stands on its original site. During its heyday, the complex consisted of a depot building, storage barn, wool barn, livestock pens, loading facilities, water storage tank and outdoor bathroom.

During open hours, 11:00 - 3:00, the railroad lights are blinking. Look for the red caboose and the depot will be right there.
