In the Spotlight: Union Station Turns 100

April marks the 100th birthday of Union Station, the architectural masterpiece that was erected in 1920 by renowned American architect Cass Glibert.  You may recognize his work from the Woolworth Building and the U.S. Supreme Court Building.  In 1975, the station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as New Haven Railroad Station.  Though the station was built during the Beaux-Arts period, its design resembles a Modernism approach that illustrates the eclectic nature of Gilbert’s works.
