Wakefield Depot Museum
The beautiful Chicago & Northwestern Depot was built in 1925. It served the rail lines running east to west making the Wakefield Depot one of the busiest subdivision stations in all of Nebraska. In 2007, the Wakefield Heritage Organization took charge of renovations and after many volunteer hours, the depot opened its doors as a museum in the summer of 2009.
You can tour the large waiting room, offices, and freight room of this depot where old railroad artifacts and Wakefield treasures fill the walls of this delightful historic attraction.
