GR & I Railroad Depot

GR & I Railroad Depot

The Grand Rapids and Indiana Railroad linked Harbor Springs to its main line in 1882, further opening the Little Traverse Bay area to resort and commercial development. Grand Rapids architect Sidney J. Osgood designed this depot, built in 1889, to serve an influx of new residents, tourists and commerce. By the mid-twentieth century the popularity of the automobile led to the decline of passenger railroads. The last train left the depot in 1962.
