Facts

  • The station's highest point was a 14-story clock tower at the corner of Wells and Harrison Streets.
  • Rail lines from this station led south along the Chicago River. They are fully decommissioned, and the River City complex was built over their right-of-way.
  • The site is currently a large vacant lot, and was considered in the early 1980's for the location of three very tall cylindrical towers in the River City project.
  • The clock tower had a flat top, and contained a 6-ton bell.
