Illinois Bicentennial: 1818 – 2018, Chatham Rail Depo & Museum

CHATHAM, IL – High School Student, Jeremie Bailey, offers the story of the Chatham Depot and Railroad Museum. Chatham is a bedroom community of Springfield, which was a small community of a few hundred for years, but which in the last 30 years has exploded in growth to over 10,000 population. It’s old Depot yet reminds residents of its once humble beginning and small-town past, not so long ago.
