Stager was originally called Iron River Junction. When the Chicago & Northwestern railroad built west from Iron Mountain, the original destination was Crystal Falls. When the line extended west to Iron River, this was the junction location. Iron River Jct. was later renamed Stager. [MPN]

The C&NW built a station here in 1890. It was a simple rectanglar frame building 20' by 60' with a gabled roof and wide overhanging eaves supported by wooden brackets. The depot was moved in 1971 to the Iron County Museum in Caspian. [UPM]
