Michican Central Depot Train Station Tour
Completed in 1913, the building is of the Beaux-Arts Classical style of architecture, designed by the Warren & Wetmore and Reed and Stem firms who also designed New York City's Grand Central Terminal.
This is one of the great American architectural and industrial wonders, and currently threatened by demolition. When it was built it was the tallest train station in the world.
