History

In the late nineteenth century, Antwerp was the largest village in Paulding County; its economy was driven by a lucrative local logging industry. Accordingly, when the Wabash, St. Louis and Pacific Railway decided to erect a train station in the village, it was built larger than stations in most other communities in the region. After the train station closed in 1976, it was purchased by the local historical society; today, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the "Antwerp Norfolk and Western Depot".[3]
