BLAINE DEPOT
BLAINE, WASHINGTON -USA
Location: BLAINE, WA
Description:
  • RAILROAD DEPOT
Comments/Directions:
Developers hope to move and transform that structure, which sits about 15 feet from the railroad tracks near F Street, into the centerpiece of the city?s planned Plover Park on the waterfront. Despite some minor damage from fire and water, most of the building could be moved and saved, although a fireplace and foundation beams will likely have to be left behind. Drayton Harbor Maritime wants to move the depot, now owned by BNSF Railway Co., to the end of Milhollin Avenue on land owned by the Port of Bellingham. There it could welcome ferry passengers disembarking the Plover ferry nearby.

The CRF is now a Washington State nonprofit corporation, and operates under the 501(c)(3) tax-deductible status of the Northern Kittitas County Historical Society, an IRS registered non-profit organization. It is the vision of the Cascade Rail Foundation, in partnership with Washington State Parks, that the South Cle Elum site, in the Iron Horse State Park, will become a significant resource for the region and the nation. The site is dedicated to the interpretation and preservation of the history of the Milwaukee Road's western extension and electrification. The Milwaukee is considered one of the most significant and cherished railroads ever to exist in the United States. After 6 years of hard work this beautifully restored Milwaukee Road Depot re-opened it's doors on July 1st, 2006 to visitors. It is located in the Iron Horse State Park on the John Wayne Trail and offers fantastic views of Peoh Point and the original rail yard.
