Great Northern Depot (Princeton)

The Great Northern Railway Depot in Princeton, on last year’s 10 Most Endangered list, was nominated for inclusion again in 2011. The building’s condition is of more concern than ever, with deteriorated roofing and exterior masonry, inadequate heating and ventilation systems, and overloaded and outdated wiring and plumbing. This building, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is owned by the Mille Lacs County Historical Society, would be a prime candidate for a Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grant (aka Legacy Grant), but the historical society needs the city to come on board as a partner. The organization needs help building its capacity to do a thorough assessment of the historic depot, and then to craft a plan for its future.
