History of Union Station Tour #5

Union Station
50 Massachusetts Avenue NE

On September 15, 2018, 15 people who were interested in Union Station’s history purchased tickets to take part in a tour. It was such a success that Union Station Redevelopment Corporation offered this tour again in November and December 2018 and June 2019 (sold out). When asked for feedback, Dan, a November participant, said “I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the balance of content presented: neighborhood history, structure history, architectural details, and some trivia and fun stories.” John, a September participant, mentioned “I have already recommended this tour to several people.”
