Staples Minnesota was a division point on the Northern Pacific Railroad. The depot is still in use today by Amtrak on the BNSF tracks. The depot is now owned by and houses the Staples Historical Society. Plans are in the works for the Historical Society museum to occupy the second floor of the building. There is an ex Northern Pacific caboose painted in the BN green scheme on display a few blocks to the east of the depot.
