This elongated, rectangular station building influenced by the Prairie Style has a hipped roof with 4-foot eaves. Recessed entry porticos occupy the southeast and southwest corners. The southern half of the structure once provided living space for the agent on a second story. Stone veneer wraps the base and rises into the square columns of the entry porticos. The depot became the town hall in 1970.
