Marinette, Marinette County, Wisconsin

The Marinette Train Depot was constructed by the Chicago Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad in 1903 to replace an earlier depot which dated to the early 1880's. The depot is a one story [sic] Queen Anne style [sic] structure with a rectangular plan. Known as a combination station, the Marinette Depot was constructed to provide shelter to passengers, freight, and train control under a single roof. Designed by architect J.U. Nettenstrom, standardized depot plans were common in small railroad towns. However, architects often varied architectural details to the exterior facades of the standard designs to provide a unique visual appearance for the community.

The structure was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004. In 2003 the building was moved from its original location to its present site to avoid demolition. The restoration and rehabilitation was partially funded from a Transportation Enhancement Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation, through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
The depot and marker are located on northbound Hattie Street, at its intersection with State Street, at or near 630 Hattie Street, Marinette,  Wisconsin 54143.
