The Peoria, Decatur & Evansville Railway

 Name:  Hampton, Hampton Station, or Dunn, Illinois(elevation 652')
 Mile Post:  99.6
 Previous Station:  Bethany
 Next Station:  Sullivan
 Description:  Originally Hampton Station, probably named after Jones Hampton.  A 1875 map shows Hampton Station at present day Dunn with Dunn some distance to the south.  Dunn was at one time a milk stop for passenger trains.  However, if you stand in the middle of what is left of Dunn today you could look around and not see a single cow*  It was removed from the list of stations sometime between 1932 and 1936.  A 2011 trip by Dunn saw a cow there, perhaps in response to this page?  Now if we can only get the passenger and milk stop back.
