:: UrbEx Series : Union Train Station ::
Mark A. Lang helped design this 2-level train station that sits between the former Baltimore & Ohio (B&O), and, the South Shore & Michigan Southern Line rails. Lang borrowed heavily from the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition that had taken place nearly 15 years prior to the design and construction. Neoclassicism abounds. It was built in 1910, and by the 1950’s it was abandoned.
