Historical Visitors Center

Updated on June 4, 2014

Welcome To Rusk County

Welcome to the visitor's center. Come on it. Walk around and take a look at the railroad display that features a diesel locomotive and caboose. Enjoy looking at the memorabilia of the railroad. You'll see a telegraph station, telegraphs, photos, art, maps and so much more. Tour the caboose that is adjacent to the Visitor Center and admire the Soo Line engine and vintage rail cars.

The Rusk County Visitors Center that is featured in this lens is located in Ladysmith, Wisconsin. It's a historical hub of Ladysmith. It's a happening place. The building you see in this picture is a replica of the Soo Line train depot from years ago. Stop in and check it out!

In this lens you'll find photo's I've taken of the Vintage Soo Line Train and Caboose. There are a few video's of a Northbound train and horn going through town. There is a photo of the train depot from long ago along with memorabilia and books on the train and caboose that is historical to Ladysmith Wisconsin.

      Very clever using an old railroad depot as a visitor center and an historical reference to an earlier time.
