Looking northeast from Portland Rd. along the Canadian National (CN) rails at Cedarburg, Wis., on 11 February 2021. This portion of the Milwaukee & Northern (M&N) main line was laid in 1870. The original depot stood here, to the left of the main line. When a new depot was built by the Milwaukee Road (MILW) in 1907, the old depot was converted into a freight house. At some point a new depot/yard office was built, the white building just left of center. Then the 1907 depot was moved to the Ozaukee County Historical Society’s Pioneer Village in the Town of Saukville on 24 January 1983.
