HIAWATHA—STATION



THIS IS PHOTO OF THE ORIGINAL STATION IN STURTEVANT





THE FORMER STURTEVANT STATION WAS ERECTED IN 1907. BY MID-1990S, ITS FORMER IMPORTANCE DWINDLED TO A MERE SHELTER FOR PASSENGERS ON TRAINS PAUSING FOR FARES PAID TO AMTRAK. IT SHELTERED ABOUT 5 PERCENT OF RIDERS IN THE MILWAUKEE-CHICAGO “HIAWATHA SERVICE CORRIDOR”. ON AUGUST 12, 2006 DEDICATION CEREMONY SIGNALED A NEW BEGINNING FOR THE STURTEVANT STATION AND THE NEW STATION WAS BUILT A FEW MILES WEST OF THE OLD STATION, WHICH CAN BE SEEN ON THE BACKGROUND IMAGE.
