Historic Depot District

Historic preservation and revitalization were at front of mind when city officials purchased the train depot on Buckeye Street in downtown Kokomo.

Built in 1910, the train depot underwent a publicly funded, major preservation and rehabilitation project starting in 2014.

The project included a pocket park located along the Industrial Heritage Trail. The park includes a cement ping pong table, foosball, cornhole, and chess tables, along with tables and additional seating. Inside the depot, a second-floor community room is available for reservations.

The restored depot is located in the heart of a two-block area that has seen more than $13 million in private redevelopment in recent years. The Historic Depot District now houses restaurants, residential options, retail shops, a bakery, a salon, microbrewery and more.
