Hinckley Fire Museum
About Hinckley Fire Museum, Hinckley
The Northern Pacific Depot in Hinckley, Minnesota, United States, is a wood-framed depot built in 1895, the year after the previous depot was destroyed in the Great Hinckley Fire on September 1, 1894. The depot was built from the plans of the previous depot. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The building was originally built by the St. Paul and Duluth Railroad, which was acquired by the Northern Pacific Railway in 1900. The Northern Pacific operated the depot until the mid-1960s. The building had separate men's and women's waiting rooms, a freight room, a restaurant known as the "Beanery", and a stationmaster's living quarters on the second floor. The depot is now known as the Hinckley Fire Museum. The museum interprets the history of the fire that destroyed six towns and burned over 400 square miles (1,000 km2). It also explains how the town was rebuilt and how the area shifted to agricultural use after the lumbering era ended.Wikipedia

Very informative and excellent history lesson for all ages. Our family of 4, our daughter age 9 1/2 & our son age 12 enjoyed it! Gifts and books about the fire and other books about Minnesota sold here.
Had no idea this was here. Both my husband and I were raised in MN and did not know the history. Was nice day to visit, staff was AMAZING and knowledgeable.
Very informative! The film was extremely interesting, personnel was friendly and provided many facts. Glad we went!
The 1894 depot is in terrific condition and obviously well cared for. Enormous amount of engaging information.
Great piece of history! You would never know.
