Overview Looking Northwest
Charles Sumner Frost was a noted architect who designed many stations for the the Chicago & Northwestern Railway. This station was also a main office for the C&NW's Ashland Division. Frost's most notable design was the beautiful C&NW Terminal in Chicago's Loop (designed with Alfred Hoyt Granger) just to the north of Union Station. That terminal was sadly demolished in 1984 to make way for the CitiCorp building, still commonly known as "The Northwestern Depot."
After the Ashland Division was abandoned and the tracks lifted, this depot was repurposed for business offices and as an apartment building.
