Kankakee County Flooding February 2018

Heavy rainfall from February 19-21, 2018 resulted in high waters on the Kankakee River.  During this time frame, St. Anne reported 5.73 inches of rain while areas in Indiana topped six inches.  

Combined with snow melt and frozen ground, the water quickly ran to streams and drainage ditches on its path to the Kankakee.

Visit to the Kankakee Railroad Museum

I had a great time visiting the Kankakee Railroad Museum, housed in the historic Illinois Central Depot!  If you want to visit, be sure to call ahead first, as the museum is staffed by volunteers and hours can vary.

The museum features original train tickets from rail lines that ran through 
Kankakee, a restored trolley car, model railroads, vintage posters, and much more!  

Check it out!
