Residents on La Crosse's Northside are uncovering
some neighborhood history.
The Lower Northside Depot Neighborhood Association
is working to restore an old railroad pillar on Kane
It's all thanks to money the group recieved from the
city for neighborhood improvement projects.
The group has already started removing concrete around
the pillar to expose the old stone.
They're also collecting names of people who have died
on the railroad to put on the structure as a memorial.
They say the project will bring to light the history
of La Crosse's northside.
Anything we can do to save historic things or bring
them back up to their old grandeur is very important,
it brings in tourism dollars, it brings in other people
to our community, I think it's a great benefit.
If you would like to like to check out the pillar.
it's located at the Kane Street Community Garden.
