Burlington Depot Museum

-A A +A
1928. Adams Ave. and Railroad Ave.

This typical small-town depot is a single-story, rectangular brick box with brick quoins dominated by an overhanging hipped roof. Fenestration is set into stuccoed upper wall panels above brick courses whose top ledge serves as sills. The same red and black brick and distinctive roofline are used for the one-story Burlington dormitory (1945) a block away, although the latter is distinguished by a large, semicircular bay. The depot and dormitory are being restored as a museum.
