Our old Lake States rail history archives & library at 319 Water Street, Suite 800 will close on Monday, May 11, 2015.

The major project of moving to our new archives complex at 330 Lynn Street in Baraboo has begun, and will continue until the process is complete. Most of the major work will take place by May 15, with the current quarters to be vacated by May 30, 2015.

Our new permanent postal address after May 15 will be:

Lake States Railway Historical Association, Inc.
330 Lynn Street,
Baraboo, WI 53913

Website, phone number and email address will remain unchanged. Temporary interruptions to phone and internet connections may be expected early the week of May 10-16 as services are changed. USPS advises any mail using old address will be forwarded to our new address for a period of 180 days.

Professional movers and volunteers will be hard at work. Calls to 608-356-5555 will be answered when possible; research and administrative functions are expected to return to normal schedules by about June 1.

Thank you to everyone from Lake States Railway Historical Association, Inc., its many members and friends for your patience and continuing support in our ongoing efforts to better preserve railway history.

LSRHA's new archives and library facility construction progress photo taken February 17th at 330 Lynn Street. The site is adjacent to Baraboo's former yard complex and one block east of the former Frost & Granger station complex and Division headquarters built in 1902. The Wisconsin & Southern R.R. currently operates the line, now owned by WisDOT, which once served as the C&NW's main rail connector between Chicago and the Twin Cities.

As we move forward in 2015 we continue to seek financial contributions to complete the funding of our new facilities. It is our hope that when we take possession during the second quarter of 2015, we will have achieved full funding. We sincerely ask that you, the reader, consider a contribution in any amount to support of the new Lake States Archive Building. Your tax deductible contribution can be sent to our offices at the following address:

Lake States Railway Historical Association
319 Water Street
Suite 800
Baraboo, Wisconsin 53913

Your support is sincerely appreciated.
