Pennsylvania Depot

The Pennsylvania Railroad Station is the focal point of the "Hoosier Bowery" district in Richmond. It was designed in the office of Daniel Burnham, a famous architect from Chicago. Mr. Burnham's firm is famous for designing The Rookery building in Chicago and The Flatiron Building in New York.

This building is included in the National Register of Historic Places, Richmond Railroad Station Historic District (added 1987 - District - #87001808).Roughly bounded by Norfolk & Southern RR tracks, N. Tenth St., Elm Pl., N. D St., & Ft. Wayne Ave. The depot is in the process of being restored by Doc & Debbie Keys of White River Architectural Salvage & Antiques.
