Union Station

New London, CT


Union Station was designed in 1885 by noted American architect Henry Hobson Richardson. This was the last of many railroad stations design by Richardson before his death in 1887, though numerous others (including Boston's South Station) were designed by his students. Union Station is particularly large for a Richardson train station and stands out as the only station not built in the style of Trinity Church in Boston. The station building features many of Richardson's characteristic motifs, including its multi-faceted roof, prominent arched entrance, and elegant brickwork.
