Faces of Railroading: Wisconsin

“Faces of Railroading and the Making of Madison and Dane County” looks at the historic role railroaders have played in this midwestern town, as they did in so many other communities. Special attention is given to railroader neighborhoods and their geographic proximity to the railroad yards. NARF and The Evjue Foundation, Madison, provided major support. Its first venue, June 8-28, 2006, was at the state capitol in Madison. The exhibit opened with a program June 8 and a reception courtesy of Trains magazine, Waukesha, Wis., and Kitchen Hearth Catering, Madison. Display followed at Mid-Continent Railway Historical Society, North Freedom, Wisconsin, through October 30, 2006, and at the Mineral Point (Wisconsin) Railroad Society’s historic depot in 2007. It is now at RP’s Pasta, 1133 East Wilson Street, Madison, 608-257-7216.
