Gresham in Shawano County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Gresham Depot Museum
A mix of freight and passenger trains ran daily. At that time, all freight came in by rail, as there was no truck service until the 1940's. Draymen would deliver the freight from the depot to the various businesses. The U.S. mail also came in by rail.
The depot was closed in 1963. In 1974, the Gresham Woman's Club and the former depot agent, Russell Ferrall and his wife, Grace, were instrumental in getting the depot moved to this site. Many community members pitched in to help with the move. Its original site was just south of here, on top of the hill.
