There’s Only One Remaining Train Station Like This In All Of Iowa And It’s Magnificent

A gorgeous one-of-a-kind train station can be found in the charming town of Independence, Iowa. The stately brick station was built in 1891 to serve the massive crowds that once descended on the town for horse races. Today the depot is a quieter place, home to the Buchanan County Tourism Bureau. There are several reasons why you have to see this unique and special depot.
