Midwest Genealogy Center Building
The Midwest Genealogy Center opened in June 2008. The largest free-standing public genealogy library in the United States boasts 52,000 square feet of resources for family history researchers.
On October 30, 1914, Union Station opened its doors. Charles Clancy who had worked at the old Union Depot, was hired as assistant station master. Jim "Two Crows" Wallen portraying Charles Clancy, will share stories of the 100 years of history of the station, the Union Station Massacre, and other exciting tales.
