St. Louis Union Station, a St. Louis Landmark and a National Historic Landmark, was once the largest and busiest passenger rail terminal in the world. Designed by the famous St. Louis architect, Theodore Link, it first opened in 1894 and at the height of train travel, serviced 22 railways. In the 1940's, over 100,000 passengers a day came through the St. Louis Union Station.
Today, this National Historic Landmark of unmatched beauty and elegance has been dramatically restored and redeveloped. St. Louis Union Station houses The St. Louis Union Station Hotel, luxury offices, a lake with seasonal paddle boats and a plaza for festivals, concerts and other special events, as well as shops and restaurants.
