South Dakota - Miranda Depot

Miranda. SD - The former Chicago & Northwestern Railroad depot of Miranda, Faulk County, South Dakota, is undergoing restoration and preservation. The depot is a classic one-story country depot built about the time the railroad line was built as an extension west from Huron in 1886. The depot was closed for a period of time after the depression, so if you were to check your railroad history records, you may not find a reference to Miranda during that time and also other periods the depot was inactive. Final closure was in 1956, and ownership transferred to the Miranda grain elevator. The grain elevator moved the depot across the street to a yard owned by the elevator. It was used for storage, and it was painted and re-roofed, keeping the building in good condition. Those factors---periods of inactivity, and some steps taken to preserve the building from the elements---help keep the building in good condition.
