St. Francois IS Gone

This photo, taken in 1910 of the Farmington Jct. Depot, was donated by William Bunch. The comments below are his.    Farmington Junction was a wide spot in the road where MO. Hwy D crossed the Missouri Illinois RR. Actually it was Farmington Jct, when the predecessor line, Illinois Southern was in business, by the time MI RR came along in the early 1920s the name had been changed to Ogborn, although I doubt if it was ever incorporated as a city. In the early days, they operated a regular freight wagon between the depot at Farmington Jct and Farmington about three miles to the south. When the St. Francois County RR was completed (1904), the IS had freight interchange at Hurryville with the St. FC RR This allowed for LCL freight to be shipped via rail to downtown Farmington.
