Our Building

the Historic Engine House Deadwood Bicycles is located in the original Burlington Railroads Engine House. The surrounding area served as Chigaco, Burlington and Quincy Railroad Yards from 1890 to the 1980's.

Although the building was reduced in size, and many others removed from the site in the 1950's, from 1993 to 1995 the City of Deadwood's Historic Preservation Office restored portions of the building and created the Railroad Museum within. The museum contains information of railroading in the Northern Hills as well as a portion of the rail line which is now the Mickelson Trail. An electric switch engine used at Homestake is still confined within the building and serves as a conversation piece.
