Location/About the Two Brothers Roundhouse
The roundhouse was constructed in 1856 to serve Aurora on the Chicago & Aurora Railroad. The walls of the structure were constructed with locally quarried limestone from Batavia! The building is the oldest limestone roundhouse in the United States and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The address of the Two Brothers Roundhouse is 205 North Broadway in Aurora. The main parking lot entrance off of Broadway (Route 25) is currently under construction with limited accessibility for the next few months. During this time, please enter the Two Brothers Roundhouse parking lot via Spring Street behind the Holiday Inn Express. Spring Street is located at the first stop light, just south of the Roundhouse. You are asked not to park in the Holiday Inn Express parking lot as you may be towed.
