Rock Island Depot Utica, Il.

     One of the smallest towns along the Illinois Michigan Canal was Utica.  The Rock Island Railroad ran through this town.  There was a train depot.  It was built in the mid 19th century.  It was located near Clark and Grove Streets.
     The building was one and one half stories tall.  It had a limestone foundation and brick walls.   It measured  50 X 18 feet.  In recent years, the building was abandoned.
     There was a severe tornado in Utica in 2004.  The depot was seriously damaged.  Subsequently, the building was demolished.
