This depot, with its 95-foot clock tower, was constructed in 1916 to serve passenger trains of the Chicago Milwaukee St. Paul & Pacific Railroad. The station consisted of a head house for passenger services and a baggage/express building connected by a glass vestibule. St. Louis pressed brick, marble floors, and oak-and-burlap paneling added interior elegance. The depot ceased its original function when train travel diminished in the 1950s. It has house the studios and offices of KXLF television since 1957.
