Daily Herald report

The Bartlett Depot Museum threw a 140th Birthday Bash Thursday to celebrate the building of the structure in June 1973 after Luther and Sophia Bartlett donated a portion of their land to the Chicago & Pacific Railroad, which was building a new rail line from Chicago to Elgin.

The museum held several events to celebrate, including a train-themed story time for toddlers and their families, a journey though the world's different cultures by an Orland Park man portraying long time depot employee Joe Charneskey, and an evening concert of railroad favorites by Patti Ecker and L.J. Slavin on the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, fiddle, banjo and musical saw.
