original Wisconsin Central Railroad Company was established by an
act of the Wisconsin State Legislature and incorporated in February
1871. It built track throughout Wisconsin, connecting to
neighboring states, before being leased to Northern Pacific Railway
between 1889-1893. It became the Wisconsin Central Railway Company
in 1897, and back to Wisconsin Central Railroad Company in 1954.
The railroad was merged into the Soo Line Railroad in 1961. The
Wisconsin Central's existence as an independent carrier was
short-lived. Much of the Wisconsin Central right of way was built
over land obtained through a Federal land-grant. It was the only
land-grant railroad in Wisconsin.
