Rockwell City Landmark Depot Museum

Railroads came to Rockwell City in 1881. There were as many as four passenger trains a day, as well as freight trains running through the town. The Milwaukee Depot is the only remaining depot of the original three. Service to the depot was suspended in 1975. There are two buildings which house artifacts donated by the community representing the history of our railroads.
