Visit this historic railroad station.

In 1911, the Oregon and Washington Railroad Station was built. It served as a train station for 60 years and steadily declined as it slowly shut down various routes and services. In 1971 it had to close its doors as a train station forever. For a few years, the old station served as an antique shop, but the shop didn't last long before that was also closed down. The station sat idle for 30 more years, then in 1999, the co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen, sponsored a renovation. This eventually made the station into Union Station, which is currently the headquarters of Sound Transit.

Sound Transit is a series of train lines throughout Seattle and other nearby cities. This modern and efficient system has seen thousands of customers throughout the years and will continue to transport many more. The renovation was so immense and significant that it won the 2000 National Historic Preservation Award. Today, you can walk through and see the new and improved interior and even book it for photo shoots for weddings, graduations, or anything that needs an awesome background.
