The Wide World of Trains

Here in central Illinois trains are everywhere. Trains sometimes make me late or wake me up at night since I live close to a track. It's true that trains can be loud and inconvenient at times, but they also have a rich history. I know I see them every day and I hardly stop to to think about everything that goes into keeping a train running

The Christian County Historical Society and Museum is lucky enough to have the old train depot from Owaneco, IL on it's premises. Right now some volunteers are working on cleaning up the depot and researching some of the pieces.

If you remember the Owaneco train depot, or have knowledge about depots in general, please stop by the Historical Society and tell us about it! We would like to discuss trains with you! If you have old pictures, even better! We can scan them in while you visit.
