Houston Union Station

What once was the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Southwest is now the main entrance and lobby to Minute Maid Park, home stadium of MLB’s Houston Astros. The station’s Great Hall was completely renovated when the ballpark was built in 1999 as false ceilings and office walls completely robbed us of its former glory. Now… its arched roof and fluted columns stand as a testament to Houston’s past and also a functional part of its present.
