The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad–popularly known as the Milwaukee Road–originally opened the LaCrosse station in 1927 at a cost of $350,000. The building’s style is unique and varied; the passenger area, breezeway, and baggage/freight station each have their own architectural identity.

Following periodic repairs and facelifts, the station underwent a major renovation in 2001, including construction of a new platform cover and the remodeling of the station and freight house as business sites. The marble floored and walled waiting room, with its benches and original wooden ticket counter, remains intact.

Amtrak provides ticketing and baggage services at this station, which is served daily by two trains.
