In April 1980, Governor Quie signed a bill making the Canadian National Station a state historical site. In December 1981, Marvin families donated $25,000 to purchase the building in memory of George and Almina Marvin. Restoration began November 1983. The depot was dedicated and opened to the public on July 4, 1985. The oak doors, window casings, and woodwork are restored from the original building, as is the counter at the office window. The public washroom doors are from the original building. The depot now serves as the Warroad City Office center. The depot is also on the National Register of Historical Places.

At Marvin, we’re driven by this purpose: to imagine and create better ways of living. As people spend more time indoors, we recognize that our work isn’t just about building better windows and doors – it’s about opening new possibilities for how people live, work, think and feel inside a Marvin space. Since the day we opened our doors in 1912 as a family-owned and operated cedar and lumber company, we’ve looked for ways to help people live better. We continue to evolve by raising the bar, building quality, beauty and simplicity into people’s everyday lives. The Warroad location is special to the company. It is home to the Marvin Home Center, Marvin headquarters, and our original manufacturing plant spanning 2m square feet of manufacturing space. Marvin employs almost 2,000 in Warroad, and we are proud to call Warroad our long-term home and headquarters location.
