Back in the Day...
The first railroad to Plymouth was built in 1859 and was known as the Sheboygan and Mississippi Railroad. It later became the Sheboygan and Fon du Lac Railroad. The first depot was built in 1859, and was located about 35 feet south of the present site. This depot served as a passenger and freight house for 13 years. In 1872 a Union Depot was built. A very destructive fire occured on July 12, 1887. It consumed the Hub House, the Union Depot, 2 grain elevators, a coal shed, 2 cheese and one freight warehouse, it also badly warped the rails. This same year the second Union Depot was built, serving until 1912, when succeeding railroads constructed their own depots. By 1912 the dark red, weathered Railroad Depot, which once echoed to the throaty rumble of the C. & N.W. steam engine, had been dismantled. The present building was constructed in 1912. In 1973 the building was purchased and renovated into a full restaurant providing excellent food to its local patrons and visitors for many years.
In 2011 Patrick & Judy Campbell’s purchased The Depot. In the remodeling process of the cocktail lounge, the original floor was uncovered, but as in any remodeling project there was a 8’x12’ section missing. Our neighbors across the tracks came to our rescue by generously donating some of their flooring to finish our project. For that, we will always be grateful. My wife and I then opened PJ Campbell’s at the Depot serving authentic German dishes with an American twist. Along with my wife Judy, our daughters Jackie & Emily we welcome you to PJ Campbell’s where you are truly family!
