“The outstanding event in Nashville in 1900 was the dedication , on October 9, of the new Union Station built by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad company (L. & N.) and the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway (N.C. & St. L.). Land had been broken for the station on August 1, 1898, with appropriate cermonies, and since that time Nashvillians had watched the growth of the giant building at the corner of Broad and Walnut Streets. Romanesque in design, built of Bowling Green grey stone with a slate roof, the station loomed large and impressive in the central city.”
