Muskego in Waukesha County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Electric Interurban Muskego Centre Station
The main stops in Muskego were at Sobek’s Resort on Woods Road and here at two hotels: The Smith’s Hotel-Tavern-Train Station and the Ctibor Hotel-kitty corner from each other here on Pioneer Dr. (formerly the Waterford Plank Road and later, “old” RacineAve.)
Service through Muskego was discontinued on August 12, 1939, but runs from Milwaukee to Hales Corners continued until June 30, 1951. Remnants of the electric railroad line are still in operation between Mukwonago and East Troy – today known as the “East Troy Electric Railroad.”
