Batavia Depot Museum
The Batavia Depot Museum is a museum in Batavia, Illinois that was once the town's primary train station. It was the first of many depots built by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 as the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad Depot. The home of local history since 1975, the Batavia Depot Museum is your bridge to the rich stories of Batavia's past. The museum's research, exhibits and programs connect visitors to the people of this place: hunters of 10,000 B.C., 16-year-old-teachers, industrial magnates, freedom seekers, rocket scientists and, most importantly, each other.
