Conceived as a railroad line in 1899, construction lasted for 15 years, concluding in 1914 when the rail-line reached Park Falls. For nearly 70 years, the rail, known as the “Omaha Line”, served as the lifeblood for the area through logging and farming opportunities, as well as the service industries that developed along the route.
