The Machine Shop was originally used by the Union Pacific Railroad as a facility to house the machinery utilized in repairing the railcars and engines along the UPRR line. Completely restored in 2004 with funding from the City of Evanston, local fundraising efforts, state grants, and several other sources, the Machine Shop is now used as event space. Whether used alone or in conjunction with the Roundhouse, it is the perfect setting for any convention or conference.
