Description

Thomas Rodd’s design of Indianapolis Union Station shows influence of noted architect Henry Hobson Richardson. Also shown here is the Pan American Plaza, built in 1987 to commemorate the Pan American Games held in town. The Union Station still serves light rail service to Washington, DC and Chicago, but has been mostly reinvented as retail space, a hotel, and other commercial shops. Indianapolis Union Station was modeled after Richardson’s Allegheny County Courthouse in Pittsburgh, which he considered to be his greatest work. In 1982 Indianapolis Union Station was added to the list of national historic places.
