NOTES
Additional Information:A 'site file' exists for this property. It contains additional information such as correspondence, newspaper clippings, or historical information. It is a public record and may be viewed in person at the Wisconsin Historical Society, Division of Historic Preservation-Public History.

Since its nomination, this fine Frost depot has been stripped of its original slate roof, its interior woodwork and fixtures, and most of the stone detail on the exterior. See NRHP form for earlier condition. The loss of the original roof has removed all integrity.
