The Rail Stop was first built to serve as a ticket station for the railroad that traveled from the Southeastern Wisconsin area to downtown Milwaukee. Today It still serves the general public only as a gathering place for fun nights, pool & dart leagues, Packer parties and charity events.

The History of the Rail Stop Saloon

In 1915 the building was the ticket station for T. M. E. R. & L. Co. interurban car line. It also served as a waiting room, boasted an ice cream parlor, news stand and confectionery store. At the rear were the dining room, kitchen and wash rooms along with a number of large sleeping rooms for passengers on the second floor. After the closing the Waterford depot, John Schriehart turned the building into a bar and eventually it became a residential house. Nelson is sincere in keeping the building’s historical past and kept everything original that could be saved, including the original hardwood floor. Historical articles and photos of its past is the main focus of the bar.  Please stop by and get De-Railed for a while at the Rail Stop Saloon.
