Our Website Analytics

Built in 1907 by James J. Hill & the Great Northern Railway, the Jackson Street Roundhouse is a very historic structure. One that takes a lot of time, effort and financial resources to operate.
We are always open to any donation amount that will help us preserve this wonderful building, and organization, run by volunteers.
 
We are a VERY unique organization, in that, we rely heavily from revenue that comes from our Museum admission and our St. Croix Valley Train Ride excursion tickets.
