Looking northwest from Mill Rd. along the Canadian National (CN) rails at Hayton, Wis., on 30 January 2021. This portion of the Milwaukee & Northern (M&N) main line was laid in 1871. I believe the depot stood here. Some old maps depict it on the north side of the tracks, others depict it on the south side. The Hwy. 151 grade crossing can be seen in the background.
