America has abundant famous train stations, from New York’s iconic Grand Central, to Denver’s fabulously remodeled Union Station. DC is blessed with a particularly lovely one. But if you only know the famous stations, you’re missing out.
Here are 25 gorgeous train stations from around the US that you may not have seen before.
1. Worcester Union Station
Some of the buildings on this list are still active train stations, and some aren’t. But all were originally built as gateways to their city.
(A note: the reason so many train stations are called Union Station is because when they were built, that’s what they called rail depots where multiple railroad companies shared the same location.)
