Chicago & NorthWestern Depot
The 1869 Chicago & NorthWestern Depot was originally located at 306 Main Street. The brick building was moved to W. Washington Street in 1912 and a new depot was built in its place, which is today the Wayne & Helen Fox Community Center. The 1869 depot was built to impress railway passengers, with stylish and substantial wide roof overhangs and ornate bracketing. At one time, tracks ran on both sides of the depot, which served both freight and passenger trains.
