The Lake States Railway Historical Association is proud to announce
that a ground breaking ceremony took place on Saturday, October 25, 2014
at its property located at 330 Lynn Street in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
The Board of Trustees turned the first spade of dirt to signify the
opening of its project to construct a purpose-built, energy efficient
building to house its growing collections.

Present from Left to Right, are LSRHA Trustees Ed Johnson, Matt
Theroux, Jim Singer, John Fisher, Dick Goddard, Ken Breher, Mike
Harrington, Don Ginter and Ray Buhrmaster. It was a breezy but mild and
sunny day at 330 Lynn Street in Baraboo, Wisconsin as the long-awaited
new archives and library building project officially got under way.
President Goddard puts his weight on the first spade full of dirt
assisted by Treasurer Ken Breher.

Equipment from Dean Blum, Inc. is shown as site preparation for the new archives and library proceeds after the groundbreaking ceremony just four days earlier. The equipment operators are shown loading for removal large chunks of concrete found below ground as grading operations continued.

This new facility, depicted below, located at the corner of Lynn Street and Roundhouse Court, borders the former site of the Chicago and NorthWestern Railroad's Baraboo Yards. Purpose built and energy efficient, this 5000 Square foot facility will provide improved research and archiving facilities, library and office space, and an expanded archival stacks area. It more than doubles the space of the current leased facility at 319 Water Street in Baraboo. We at Lake States eagerly look forward to the completion of this major step this coming spring.

As we continue with our efforts to complete the funding for this
project, we sincerely ask that you, the reader, consider a tax deductible
contribution in support of the new Lake States Archive Building.
