What about Our Depot?
This Chicago, Burlington, & Quincy Railroad depot, built in the 1860s, was donated to West Chicago by Burlington in 1978. It has been removed from its original site on Wood Street and is now included here as a part of the West Chicago City Museum.
Included inside the depot is a Turntable Model of the 1869 Chicago North West Roundhouse, including 13 engine stalls.
From May to September, we offer Depot Days. Check our events page for this year's Depot Days, and come take a look at the interior of this depot, as well as the 1869 Roundhouse Model!
