Thomas Kimball, a prominent Nebraska architect at the turn of the 20th century, designed the Burlington Railroad Station to replace a smaller depot then on the site. The station, completed in 1898, served passengers and freight riding with the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad, a company that operated throughout the Midwest beginning in 1850. The new structure had the form of a classical temple with a symmetrical layout, rows of freestanding columns, and a portico extending the width of the front façade. In 1930, a remodeling occurred with many of the original features removed or altered. By the 1970s, declining rail service and economic hardship resulted in the closure of the station. In 2013, Omaha TV station KETV purchased the building and began to renovate the building for use as their headquarters.
