Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad-Wilton Depot is an historic structure located in Wilton, Iowa, United States. The Mississippi and Missouri Railroad built the first rail line in 1855 in what would be called Wilton Junction.[2] The railroad became the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad a few years later. After the building served as a train station it went into decline until the Wilton Historical Society obtained and restored it. The former station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
