Hello all,
I have been researching a book about the History of Chalco NE. I saw the wonderful photos on here of the depot in the 1950's. I would love any further information or more photos to be used and credited in my book. There are very few photo's of Chalco at the libraries, historical societies etc. Memories of the town are welcome as well.

I have a few photos from the steam excursions in 1964 and 1965. I know that the depot was struck by lightning in probably 1965.
The agent still lived upstairs at the depot until then. The 1965 photo i have shows a darker roof and boarded up windows.
Not sure what year the depot was removed. I have no photos of the town.

Would love any pictures you have. Please give me the information to correctly credit them. The book should be done by December. I am currently researching all the early deeds. Thank you. You can email me directly at Steidlmind@gmail.com. Much thanks!
