They are proposing to tear down the historic Big Four Railroad Depot in Mattoon. We are trying to raise public support in opposing this effort. Please visit the above website for more information. There is some local history posted there as well.
We are also looking for pictures and stories of life working on the railroads in Mattoon, as well as any old pictures from town. If anyone has any to share, please respond.
