Milwaukee Railroad Depot

The former Milwaukee Railroad Depot in Jefferson, Iowa, has been restored and is used for several purposes. It serves as the trail head for the Raccoon River Valley Recreational Bike Trail. The first section of the hard surface bike trail extends 18 miles and connects to an older section at Yale and goes on through Panora and Adel to West Des Moines.  The depot also houses tourist information and railroad memorabilia. Local citizens donated money to pave the Lincoln Highway across Greene County in the 1910s—this was the first paved section in Iowa. The Depot can be rented for various occasions. For reservations, call The Welcome Center at 515-386-2155.
