Description"This postcard shows the present depot shortly after it was constructed in 1913. As the image reveals, horse-drawn dray wagons were still used to carry goods from the depot to stores in town, but they would soon be replaced by early trucks. The new brick structure featured separate waiting rooms for men and women. It was refurbished in 1976." "McDonough County Historic Sites, " by John E. Hallwas, p. 29.
