Union Station, built in 1914, in her prime as a working train station accommodated 100,000’s of passengers yearly. During WWII, one million or so travelers, many of them soldiers passed through Union Station.
Closed in the 1980s, the Station sat empty and neglected, narrowly escaping demolition on several occasions.
In 1996, a historic bi-state initiative was passed to fund the Station’s renovation, which was completed in grand fashion in 1999.
Union Station is once again a majestic and desired destination for surrounding communities. Once again, magical, warm, casual, elegant, and full of surprises.
Union Station draws tourists from all over the world who marvel at the Grand Hall’s 95-foot ceiling, three 3,500-pound chandeliers and the six-foot wide clock hanging in the central arch. Waking up early and staying up late to host business meetings, events, weddings and parties of all sorts. And that’s just the beginning . . .
You can still catch the train at Union Station and head out across the country. It is a gorgeous place to visit.
