The Chicago and North Western Passenger Depot is an historic train station located in Wall Lake, Iowa, United States. Wall Lake was served by both the Chicago & North Western Railroad and the Illinois Central Railroad, which gave it a significant rail presence from the 1880s until World War II.[2] The C&NW depot is an example of a combination station plan. The plan combined both passenger and freight services in one building.[3] They were commonly used during the heyday of railroad growth round the turn of the 20th century. The depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
