Property Description

The Depot stands as a monument of rail days gone by. For nearly seven decades, family members and loved ones stood at the atrium of the Depot and waved to passengers boarding the trains of the Milwaukee Road line. While the last train left in 1971, the Depot still stands as a monument to the classic travel experience. The complex includes a Renaissance Marriott, a Residence Inn by Marriott, an indoor water park, an interpretive history center about The Depot, Charley's Grill and the Stone Arch Bar, banquet and event space, underground parking for 650 automobiles, and an enclosed seasonal ice rink.
