The Depot

Since 1855 when the Mississippi and Missouri Railroad, soon to be called the Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railroad (CRI & P) built the first rail lines in Wilton Junction, Iowa, the community has celebrated a rich railroad history. After falling into disrepair, the Wilton Historical Society acquired the depot in 1987 and over the next decade worked to raise the funds to restore this significant piece of city history.
