Long Description:
This red brick structure was built in 1909. The Rock Island Railroad Corporation of Chicago built this building to sell agricultural implements under the name of Rock Island Plow Company.

The building is actually quite attractive! Hopefully someone will come along and fix up the woodwork and windows.
