35 - The Railroads

Chippewa Falls & Western Railway

(-as transcribed from page 496)

In 1875 the Chippewa Falls & Western Railway Company constructed a road from Chippewa Falls to Eau Claire, which was the Wisconsin & Minnesota Railroad from Abbotsford to Chippewa Falls in 1880.

Wisconsin Central Railroad, which has been taken over by the Soo Railway Company and now forms a part of this great system, came into Eau Claire up to April, 1890, over the tracks of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway Company's tracks for a mile outside the city, but since that time this railway has used its own terminus, its depot being on Dewey and Eau Claire streets.
