Paint Out: Dearborn Station

May 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

This Saturday contains the excitement of city streets and the historical Dearborn Station along with a beautiful clock tower.

Dearborn Station was, beginning in the late 1800s, one of six intercity train stations serving downtown Chicago.  In 1971 passenger service left the Station, and after years of neglect it began a new life in mid-1980 as a commercial office/retail center, helping to revitalize Printers Row District of Chicago. It remains one of the oldest railroad stations in the United States and is the last remaining early downtown train station in Chicago.  The Station, originally completed in 1885, with its 12 story Romanesque clock tower sets off the southern view of Dearborn Street.

There is street parking and bathrooms inside the building.
