Evanston ishome of the last intact Roundhouse on the original Union Pacific Railroad line. In 2004, a Master Plan was created designating the Roundhouse as a future public building and as a future city hall. In 2009, the community held the first event in the renovated first section of the Roundhouse: The 27th Annual Renewal Ball.
