From what I understand from Marv’s interpretation of the plaque he read, the above depot was originally located in Upland, named such as it was the highest point the rail line, but later moved to Muncie.   In 1993 in honor of Taylor University’s 100th anniversary, the University made arrangements to have he depot moved back from Muncie to Upland and it now serves as a museum/sport & rec center.

The clock was donated by the Upland Chamber of Commerce in 1994 and custom built by the Verdin Company (Cincinnati, OH).

  1. very nicely done but this is only 1/2 of the original building. The tracks are located in a hand dug ravine and there were covered “swing back” stairs leading down to the tracks and another set of stairs on the opposite bank. ( according to the plaques next to the depot).
