Walnut Grove Depot

Revisiting some great old 1920s photos from near Walnut Grove, Minnesota.

Sarah's Notebook

You never know what you’ll come across when you are searching the web. When I was looking for something else entirely I found this page of old (circa 1920s) family photos of Revere, MN. Not only is that just down the road from Walnut Grove, but that’s also where the depot that now is part of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum came from in the early 1980s. It was a hard trip, it even fell off into the ditch once along the way, but it finally made it and has put in years of faithful service. It’s current the red buidling with the Laura displays.

So when I saw the name Revere, Minnesota I just had to check out the photos and low and behold, there was the depot in its original location. You can see it the best in the photo…
