From its opening in 1894 until the last train left in 1978, St. Louis Station was one of America's most important urban railway terminals. An architectural and engineering landmark, Union Station reopened in 1985 as a shopping, hotel and entertainment complex, becoming once again the vibrant place for people that it had been for the 84 years it also served as a marvelous place for trains. In this new centennial history, railway historians Don L. Hofsommer and H. Roger Grant describe the station's railroad and social history in rich detail, while architectural historian Osmund Overyby recounts the architectural history of this grande dame of American railway stations. Over 100 photographs, illustrations and maps, most never before published in a book, recall many moments in the life of this great station during a remarkable century of service to St. Louis and the nation.
