The Dimock Depot is another fun part of our historical village complex. Step back in time and imagine an era when trains were the most popular method for traveling!

In 1886, A Milwaukee Road junction line cut its way through the Dakota Territory prairie with the small town of Dimock along the way.

Dakota Discovery’s depot building was built in 1914 to replace a much smaller one outgrown by passenger and freight traffic.

While the prairie schooner earlier brought settlers to parts of the growing nation, the people flocking to the new lands of Dakota Territory during the Dakota Boom of the 1880′s arrived here by train.

The rail lines were the lifeblood of the Dakota country.
