Biography/HistoryThe train ran through many towns that did not have a station. People who lived near the tracks often sent letters to James J. Hill requesting a station that would bring more people to their area and provide jobs. Grand stations were built in major cities along the line. Minot had stations (also called depots) for the Great Northern Railway (in this photo) and the Soo Line.
The Great Northern Depot in Minot was built about 1903. The building is still standing and serves as the Amtrak station.
