Illinois - Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad Historical Society Museum

Watseka, IL - The Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad Historical Society has opened a museum in two rooms of the Watseka Union Station in Watseka, Illinois. In the late 1980's the Watseka Union Depot was acquired by the Watseka Historical Society and moved about 300 feet east of the original location. A new basement was constructed under the relocated building and it was then lowered to its new foundation. The historical group then began the restoration project to restore the station to its original appearance. The facility now provides a location for various Watseka area functions such as dinners, charity events and even wedding receptions. The depot level consists of a main waiting room, a ladies waiting room, former office and baggage area for the Toledo Peoria and Western and the former office and baggage area of the Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad.
