Landmarks Illinois has honored the Stone Avenue Train Station with the 2016 Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Award for Restoration.
Built in 1901, the Stone Avenue Train Station is one of nine projects honored for preservation efforts to save, restore, rehabilitate and reuse historic places in Illinois.
Beginning in 2005, the Village launched a restoration effort to restore and stabilize the iconic La Grange landmark, while preserving its turn-of-the-century feel. The project was funded through $1,085,000 in grants.
