The Ann Arbor Rail Depot, located in the town of Shepherd near Mt Pleasant, was originally built in the early 1890’s and served the Shepherd area until the early 1960’s when the cost of rail shipping just could not compete with the trucking industry and passenger travel by rail had been long gone and given way to the automobile. The Chamber of Commerce purchased the building from the Ann Arbor railroad with the goal of restoring the building to its original condition. Over the past ten years the committee has been able to obtain several pieces of railroad history for display at the depot. Including and Ann Arbor Railroad caboose and Engine.
I also found this old photo of the train depot, I wonder where the people were going to?
