Archaeology, History, Specialized
The Cascade Rail Foundation began as The Friends of the South Cle Elum Depot in 1999. Our mission was to help to preserve this historic site and work with State Parks to develop it into a place were the public could come to see and learn of the history of the Milwaukee Railroad. We are located on the John Wayne Trail, the original rail bed of the Milwaukee Railroad. The trail is just over 110 miles in length and is a Washington State Park. Our site specifically consists of twelve acres.
