Illinois Central Hyde Park Station
Life Span: 189x-TBD
Location: 57th Street, Jackson Park
the Illinois Central Station at 57th Street in Hyde Park was built in the high Victorian Gothic style, and featured a large central pavilion area, along with canopies that sprawled around the entire building. The station also had restroom facilities and a restaurant frequented by local residents. While not every area was fortunate enough to have such an ornate building, certain architectural elements like cupolas, dormers, and long platforms were incorporated into many of the stations.
