Minnehaha Depot

Minnehaha Park Hwy 55 & Minnehaha Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55417

The Minnehaha Depot was a former Milwaukee Road depot at Minnehaha Falls. The station, built in 1875, was nicknamed "The Princess" because of its delicate architecture. The depot is a contributing property to the Minnehaha Historic District. The Minnesota Transportation Museum operates the depot for its owner, the Minnesota Historical Society. In 1967, the depot became the first building to be restored by the museum and it was outfitted with exhibits.

The depot is open Sundays between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
