Evansville, Wisconsin, USA

🇺🇸 Evansville is a city in Rock County, Wisconsin, United States. The major employers in Evansville are: Baker Manufacturing Company, a pump and well maker; Stoughton Trailers, which builds semi-trailer chassis; Varco-Pruden, which manufactures prefab metal buildings; and Evansville Manor, a nursing home. Evansville has one home-town bank that has been in business in Evansville for over 100 years.

Some tracks of the former Chicago & North Western railway remain. The terminal had included multiple spur, classification, and industrial tracks, but after 1996, when the line was sold to Union Pacific railway, nearly all rail facilities in town were removed. The line, which at a point in time carried 70 mph-plus speeds, was left in a state of disrepair. The Evansville Depot, built in 1910 (replacing the older wooden depot) was unmanned by 1970 and renovated for use as the local Legion VFW Post 6905.
