Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad Depot

Categories List:   
Address:
Red Oak, IA, United States, Iowa, USA 51566
Year Built/Circa: 1903
Current Use: Museum
Vacancy: Occupied
Description:

In 1903 when the CB&Q (Chicago, Burlington & Quincy) Railroad Depot was completed, it was a model of modern convenience linking Red Oak Iowa to more urban communities in worlds totally different from life here on the prairie. Rural communities were virtually inaccessible by any method of transportation until lifelines of railroads joined them to more metropolitan societies.

Re-dedicated 20 DEC 2003, on the 100th anniversary of the first dedication, The Restored Burlington Northern Depot now houses a WWII Memorial Museum, dedicated to all those who served in the Second World War, whether on the front lines (1,100 active duty service participants were from Montgomery County Iowa) or the home front.
