Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Milwaukee Railroad Depot in Delmar, Iowa is considered historically important for both its architecture and its role in the development of the town of Delmar. Although typical of depot construction during the “golden age” of steam railroading, it was unusual for depots to be built in this late Victorian Style west of the Mississippi River. The Davenport & St. Paul railroad and the Midland division of the Chicago and North Western competed to be the first to complete laying track to what was then Bloomfield township. Competition was fierce and both railroads completed laying track on the same day, approximately an hour apart, creating a junction and a bustling hub of commerce. A year later a third line, the Sabula, Ackley and Dakota began providing service, and a booming railroad town was born. The last passenger train came through Delmar on May 2, 1971 at 8:30 a.m. The last freight train used the station in October, 1982.
