The Great Northern Caboose was a gift from the BNSF to The Town of Wilson Creek. It is a reminder of the important role that the railroad played in the development of the town. Wilson Creek was the division point for the railroad. It had coal and water facilities and an eleven stall roundhouse. Interpretive signage, detailing the history of the railroad in Wilson Creek, was completed in 2007.
