Standing at the Crossroads of a New Century
Union Station occupies a unique place in Dallas history. The landmark building stands as a testament to the Age of Steam and as a reminder of the strategic role railroads played in the city's growth and development.

Built in 1916, Union Station consolidated five scattered rail stations into one, making Dallas a transportation center in the Southwest. At its peak, as many as 80 trains stopped daily at the station.

Now at the crossroads of a new century, Union Station once again assumes a central role in the area's future growth and development, uniting DART bus, light rail, and commuter rail service with AMTRAK interstate rail service.

Dallas Milestones and Historic Murals
During the Great Depression, the federal government launched the Public Works of Art Project, commissioning artists around the nation to create works of art for courthouses, post offices, and other public buildings.

In 1934, Dallasites Jerry Bywaters and Alexander Hogue were granted the first commission in Texas. They created a series of ten murals depicting events in Dallas history for the walls of the second-floor lobby of the old City Hall Building, located on Harwood street between Main and Commerce streets.

Union Station Mural

The murals were destroyed in 1954 when the City Hall relocated. To decorate DART's Union Station, Phillip Lamb, Union Station artist, recreated portions of the murals and added contemporary historical milestones based on each mural's theme.
