— UNION STATION - Architecture by Daniel Burnham 1908 —Designed in the Beaux-Arts style, this was the world's largest train station when it opened - the station and terminal zone originally covered approximately 200 acres and included 75 miles of tracks. For over half a century its coffered ceilings and granite walls provided an impressive "gateway" for travelers to the nation's capital; among them were kings, queens, and presidents as well as millions of Americans and visitors from around the world.
