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.

Illinois - Elizabeth Depot Museum
Elizabeth, IL - The Chicago Great Western Railroad Depot on Myrtle Street in downtown Elizabeth, Illinois was constructed in 1888 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.

So it is expected, the new depot museum will once again make this building the center of activity for the village, focusing now on residents and tourists, re-discovering the historic past. The Elizabeth Historical Society has opened the old passenger waiting room in the depot as a local history museum.

Illinois - Lincoln Depot
Springfield, IL - When Lincoln left Springfield to start his inaugural journey on February 11, 1861, he paid an unforgettable tribute to his friends and neighbors known today as the Farewell Address.

Following a major renovation and rehabilitation effort, the Depot reopened in early 2013. The first floor houses a self-guided museum while the second story exists as the Noll Law Office. In 2014 the Depot was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

We invite you to learn more about the history, view pictures and video, and visit the place where Lincoln's feet last touched Springfield.
