News on Historic Register Nomination
The decades-long quest for the Milwaukee Railroad Shops to receive recognition on the National Register of Historic Places is nearing its end.
What has been a thirty-year research process to document the significance of
the former Sioux City Engine Terminal, Roundhouse and Repair Shops of the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway has moved to the final stages.
With its robust collection of historic railroad buildings, including a roundhouse and turntable, rail yard, and foundation remnants of former buildings and structures; the Milwaukee Railroad Shops is poised to become one of the largest railroad repair shops in the National Register of Historic Places.
The National Park Service today announced in the Federal Register that a
15-day public comment period is now open to solicit comments on the significance of the Milwaukee Railroad Shops for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
Public comments must be received by March 26, 2018.
We would love them to hear from our supporters.
Comments may be sent via U.S. Postal Service and other carriers to the:
