Located in Vinton, Iowa, this 1900 railroad depot tells the industrial stories of how the railroad provided the infrastructure to allow industry to grow in Benton County. The railroad provided essential accessibility for businesses like the Iowa Canning Company, Vinton Produce Company, Vinton Steel Works and Vinton Pearl Button Company. The Depot, once the sales office for Hawk Bilt farm implements, now tells the story of that company and highlights the railroad’s rich local history with artifacts and memorabilia. Visitors can step back in time in the authentic depot agent’s office, which includes the original telegraph complete with sound.


June-Sept open the first and third Saturdays of the months from 10-2. Any other time by appointment, call the contact numbers. Phil 319-472-3918 or Andrew 319-560-9053. CLOSED July 6, 2024.
