Kokomo Acquiring Historic Landmark

by Sammy Edmonds posted Mar 28 2014 3:31PM
The city of Kokomo has purchased a historic train depot and two miles of right-of-way track to be revitalized as a landmark.
 
The property is currently owned by the Central Railroad Company of Indianapolis, and has been used for railroad maintenance operations in recent years. As part of the purchase, the company has agreed to repair and update six existing railroad crossings in Kokomo by the end of the year.
 
The depot was originally constructed in 1910 and is Kokomo’s last standing train depot. It sits in the Depot District, which is being revitalized by local businesses and investors. A section of the city’s Industrial Heritage Trail and the Nickel Plate Trail run near the depot, and the mayor says they plan to make the area a hub for the trail crossings.
