The mission of Save the Northfield Depot is to rescue and restore the Northfield depot through communicating its historical significance and identifying a new location, owner(s), and user(s) in order to retain an important part of our heritage.
The vision of Save the Northfield Depot is to secure and restore the depot; the additional features in the 1917 Plan (pavilion and baggage house) will be added; and the depot will serve as a visitors’ attraction and a gathering place for the community.
Save the Northfield Depot is committed to:
- Historic Preservation: protecting and preserving a key part of the Northfield heritage and pride of place
- Beautification: assuring the depot is appropriately maintained, free of blight, and a visual asset to the community
- Economic Development: providing a catalyst to the economic development in the city
- Education: educating the current and future generations about the rich history and role of the railroads and the depot in Northfield
- Building Community: providing community gathering places to promote opportunities for social interaction and public events
- Sustainability: reusing existing buildings as a responsible use of our resources
