The building was originally built by the St. Paul and Duluth Railroad, later the Northern Pacific Railway. The depot is now the Hinckley Fire Museum. The museum interprets the history of the fire that destroyed six towns.

The museum explains how the town was rebuilt after the fire and how the area shifted to agricultural use after the lumbering era ended.

As a train depot, the building had separate men's and women's waiting rooms, a freight room, a restaurant known as the "Beanery", and a station master's living quarters on the second floor.
