St. Louis Union Station

6 mi. away
In the heyday of American railroading a well-known eatery provided passengers with fine food and friendly service. At the turn of the century, Fred Harvey opened one of his famous eateries in what was then the Terminal Hotel at St. Louis Union Station. Harvey was responsible for changing the concept of railroad dining in the late 1800s. To satisfy the traveler's needs, their orders were taken by the brakeman while still on board the train, then wired to the restaurant manager in advance. This procedure made relaxed railway dining feasible, allowing plenty of time for travelers to catch the next train. From its magnificent 65-foot, barrel-vaulted ceiling in the Grand Hall to its Victorian-engineered train shed totaling more than 11 acres, St. Louis Union Station remains one of our nation's true architectural "gems." Built at a cost of $6.5 million in the 1890s St. Louis Union Station was designed by German-born architect Theodore C. Link of St. Louis who won the prized project in a nationwide contest. In the early 1980s , the Station underwent a $150 million restoration.
