35 - The Railroads

The Chippewa Valley & Superior Railroad

(-as transcribed from page 496)

This company began the construction of its line from Wabasha, Minnesota, to Eau Claire in 1881.  The road was completed and opened for traffic in November, 1882, and was later transferred to the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Company.  It is now known as the Chippewa Valley Division of that company's system, and follows the Chippewa river course for fifty miles, having five or six stations on the way.  The extension to Chippewa Falls was opened for traffic December 31, 1883, and has since been in operation.
