Swedeburg Depot Sign 1 comment

Feb 8, 2011 |
I grew up in Nebraska, and have just discovered in the last few years just how much fun we can have here. (Oh, my heart and soul will always be in the Ozarks, but that story is for another day). The historic little town we live in has about beautiful old church and 11 houses, all built by the same company back in the early 1900s. We still have reminders of the old Chicago & Northwestern Railroad that long ago passed through our town. I wasn’t here then, but I can only wish that I had seen it. Very few remnants remain of the old train station, though I know there are stories to be heard from the old timers around here. Only a few photos of the depot are in existence and those, at best, are not high quality. I had the idea some time ago to try and recreate the old depot sign. With a little bit of research and some help from the local library, I was able come up with a good rough sketch. So I bought some boards and some paint, and went to work.
