    The depot address is 114 Cedar Street. The depot is currently occupied by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Tabor Memorial Post, VFW Post 6479.

    Hope this helps.

    From Richard Crabtree on Frisco Rails Across Missouri:
    We are still on the Salem Branch of the Frisco Lines. We are the Frisco Depot for Steelville, Missouri. The town was incorporated as a city of the fourth class in 1885. At this time, there were 500 inhabitants. The Lebanon Lodge, Masonic, was chartered on October 14, 1846. The first tailor, Mr. Vanburg, came in town in 1844. The first hotel was owned by James Davis. In 1847, A. W. Johnson opened a blacksmith shop. Andrew Jackson opened the first Post Office. Doctor Dunlap was the first doctor, and in 1838, J. H. Johnson opened the first saddle and harness shop. The Steelville Normal Business Institute was originally at Vichy. It was moved to Steelville with the help of John T. Woodruff of Springfield and Professor Hayes and opened during the latter part of 1890.
    The first Newspaper of Steelville, Steelville Crawford Missouri, was established on May 4, 1874, by Thomas Roberts. The paper was printed in a log cabin the first time and was a Republican paper.
