Sturgis Railroad Depot

Sturgis, Michigan • June 2014

Sturgis, Michigan, a friendly town of 11,000 residents in Southwest Michigan had a plan to move and revitalize its aging Railroad Depot. The Depot was in need of repairs in an out-of-the-way area of town. Plans called for relocation to the vibrant downtown area for better visibility, where it could be repurposed and restored as an interactive children’s museum.
