Pine River Depot Receives National Register Recognition!
The historic and newly renovated Pine River Railroad Depot received national recognition on Saturday, September 8, 2012, by being accepted to the National Register of Historic Places. The newly remodeled depot was brought back to its 1913 Northern Pacific appearance. Heritage Group North was the local history organization that worked with many others to bring this recognition!
THE FAMOUS PINE RIVER DUCK RACES
Every Friday from mid-June through mid-August, the famous Pine River Duck Races take place on the Pine River! Duck racers rent a duck (decoy) for a buck ($1), the duck is placed in a barrel with fifty other ducks, and the whole batch is dumped off the Pine River dam into the river. The first duck to “stream” down the river one hundred yards to the finish line wins! This event is open to all ages, and updates are posted on our Facebook page.
