Railroads played a key role in the development of the Heritage Highway corridor. Trains brought settlers and goods west to the new towns and took farm products back to market. As times have changed and transportation has evolved, many railroad depots in the Heritage Highway corridor have been converted to historical museums or have been torn down completely. The 1906 Burlington Northern Depot now houses the Gage County Historical Society Museum, while the Union Pacific Depot that once faced it has been razed. A pavilion commemorating the Union Pacific Depot has been erected on the original site.
