Union Station

Inside Union STationUnion Station Washington DC

Union Station was once a closed up derelict on the edges of a fairly rough neighborhood (though certainly not the roughest in DC), but beginning in 1983 renovations and the development of the local area transformed the venerable train station into a shopping, transportation and tourist center.

Statues ("History" and "Grief") erected 1877 to honor naval war dead from the American Civil War. Inscribed on the base is "In memory of the officers, seamen and marines of the United States Navy who fell in defense of the Union and liberty of their country, 1861-1865" - sculpture was done by Franklin Simmons.
