Long Description:
Constructed in 1900, the depot is an eclectic and highly ornamented structure that differs from the rather plain commercial buildings of Evanston. The depot is a one story, single detached structure with a hipped roof that is intersected by gables on either end. This brick building has a prominent entrance with a crow stepped gable centered in the middle of the facade. A round window with stone surrounds is located in the middle of the gable. A semicircular brick arch with a keystone and radiating voissoirs with contrasting brick colors, accents the double doors. Two twin brick towers, one on each side of the door, also draw attention to the primary facade. The towers have conical roofs, dentil moldings, and a stone watertable. A large overhang with massive wood brackets surrounds the building except for the entrance. Underneath one overhang, each window has brick lintels with voissoirs and stone sills. The depot has a nine bay front and the double hung windows are original, the double doors are not original. The stone watertable is mirrored in the ring on the chimney. At some time, he depot may have been lightly sandblasted.
