Google Earth Plug-in: Canadian National Depot, Warroad

Info Map Comments (1) Related Files


As railroads stretched across Minnesota in the 19th century, many small towns were platted along the tracks. Nearly every community that grew along the lines had a depot of its own. Today more than 50 Minnesota depots are listed on the National Register. The Canadian National Depot in Warroad, located on the only section of the Canadian Transcontinental Railway to cross U.S. land, is believed to be the first depot built by a foreign railway in the continental United States.

Similar to the Canadian company’s depot in Rainy River, Ontario (also designed by J. Schofield), the Warroad station has a classic depot plan: a two-story central structure housing the stationmaster’s quarters, ticket window and railroad offices, flanked by one-story wings containing waiting rooms and baggage rooms. The broad, hipped roof, inspired by the Craftsman style and supported by large open brackets, extends beyond the brick structure to provide a canopy for waiting passengers.
