Union StationSince opening almost 105 years ago in October 1907, Union Station has been one of Washington DC's most important buildings.  Not only did the terminal revolutionize local railroading by creating a grand gateway to the Nation's capital, it also shaped and reflected life in ways far beyond transportation, including politics and government, planning, architecture, economics, race relations, and gender roles.  Learn more about Union Station's place in the history of Washington through a ninety-minute walking tour on Saturday, June 2, 2012 with Bill Wright, an historian and member of Washington's Committee of 100 on the Federal City. This tour, mostly inside, is being offered at 10AM and 2PM.
