The museum building was originally known as the "Whiskey Northern" depot built in 1907. The Wisconsin & Northern Railroad moved the depot to White Lake in 1916. In 1996, the building was slated for replacement. White Lake formed a Historical Society and moved the original building to a village lot. The White Lake Depot Museum is one of the most charming railroad & community museums anywhere.
