In the late 1800s, Creston was a major railroad hub in the western part of Iowa with more than 50 trains coming through the town daily. One of the largest engine houses was erected there to service the trains. A large brick-and-stone, two-story depot was erected in 1899 and has been restored. It now houses city offices and a senior citizen’s center. Visitors can view the depot and its displays of railroad information and artifacts. Amtrak’s California Zephyr stops in Creston twice daily.
