Historic Train Depot in Sikeston Getting Facelift

SIKESTON, MO - The historic train depot in Sikeston is undergoing several changes this summer, with the intent of giving visitors a glimpse into its past.

Thanks in part to a grant from the Missouri Dept. of Transportation, additions and renovations are being made to both the interior and exterior of the facility, which dates back to 1916.

The 91-year-old building is undergoing both landscaping and lighting improvements, and an ornate sign boasting of the depot's place on the National Register of Historic Places will hang in front of the building.
