1891 Train Depot
Built in 1891, the Dwight Train Depot is one of only a few remaining railroad stations between Chicago and St. Louis featuring the architectural design of the 1890's. Restored in 1984 and still in service today, current passenger rail service is provided by Amtrak. The depot also serves as offices for the Dwight Chamber of Commerce and meeting space for the Dwight Historical Society. The depot was included in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
