DC’s Union Station, 100 More Years?

Last weekend, Union Station in Washington D.C. turned 100 years old. Though officially opened in 1907, the wonderful example of Beaux-Arts style celebrated its final completion a year later in 1908. Today, the white granite columns, cavernous barrel-vaulted ceilings, and marble floors echo a history of soaring American architecture as bygone as the train whistles just down the hall. If you’ve yet to experience this old-school grandeur in DC, make it this special year. Even if just for a movie (downstairs theater).
