Chicago Great Western Freighthouse


East Sixth and Sycamore

The Waterloo city fathers recognized the importance of railroads to the city's growth, and did not stop until there were three railroads coming into Waterloo: the Illinois Central, Rock Island, and Chicago Great Western. This building handled freight and the passenger depot was on the opposite side of the block. Passenger trains also stopped at the Rock Island Depot across the river.
