Illinois Central Railroad Depot

-A A +A
c. 1900. West side of river, between N. Main and Lincoln St.

An unusual gambrel roof caps this brick one-and-a-half-story station. There is a suggestion of brick pilasters along the platform face of the building, and these together with the gable over the stationmaster's office suggest that this small building is one of the public entries into the city.
