This passenger depot was constructed in 1913. It is located on the corner of Walnut and Main Street. This was replacement of a prior wood frame building. There was also an adjacent wood frame freight house built in the late 1800’s. This was also demolished. At the time of the construction of the new depot, Ottawa had passenger service with the Rock Island Railroad and the interurban electric line also known as Chicago, Ottawa, and Peoria.
The depot is a one and a half story brick building. It measures 60 x 25 feet. The foundation is concrete. The walls are buff colored brick. The roof is intersecting hipped with terra cotta tile. There is an interior brick chimney.
The tracks are seen along the west side of the building. Brick pavers extend from the west building to the tracks.
