Big Four Depot

223 N. Broadway Avenue



In 1889, the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad, better know as the “Big Four,” emerged after consolidation. Their rail car repair shops became a major employer in the city. In 1917, this brick depot opened, providing “handsome new quarters” for the railroad. With the advent of the automobile, however, the use of the station diminished and this building was last used as a passenger station in 1957.
