“The Stone Avenue Train Station’s restoration is a model project demonstrating a community’s value for its civic infrastructure. Unique and noteworthy is the pantheon of partners that coalesced around the importance of its reuse.”

Historic Accuracy

To enable more historically accurate upgrades, the La Grange Area Historical Society scoured its archives for plans and photos of the original design, which inspired improvements to the roof, lighting, and platform signage.

“The newly renovated station is, very simply, lovely to look at, and like a treasured piece of art, it enriches our lives while serving the transportation needs of thousands of commuters on a daily basis.”


Point to the Past

Documentation from the early 1900s allowed the village to replicate the original signage on the outbound platform.

“The Stone Avenue Train Station is a much-beloved architectural gem that exemplifies the Classical and Richardsonian Romanesque styles and symbolizes the village’s connection to rail.”


Accessibility Innovation

A gently sloping sidewalk replaces an old ramp to achieve an ADA compliant solution that complements the station’s arches.
