Now Arriving Washington: An Historic Tour of Union Station
Attention: Late Boomers and Early Busters! Alumni, Spouses and Partners
Did you grow up playing with Lionel Trains?
No building captures the history of modern Washington better than Union Station. It revolutionized transportation by creating a grand gateway to the nation's capital; it also shaped and reflected politics, government, architecture, economics, race relations and gender roles.
On this 90 minute (mostly) indoor tour learn about Union Station's central place in Washington over the past 100 years, as well as its possible future roles. Our guide is one of our own Boomers to Busters, Bill Wright, Williams '84. Bill is an expert on Union Station, see www.washingtonunionstation.com.
Tour starts at 10 AM. A "pay as you go" Tex-Mex group lunch will follow at noon at Thunder Grill in the Main Hall of Union Station.
Union Station is on the Red Line and has paid parking on the upper levels. Tour is wheelchair and stroller accessible.
$10/adult (18 and older); $5/youth (7–17); Free/child (6 and younger).
