Why the name Union Station 1820?
The name of Union Station 1820 is tied to some events
of historical significance:
Union - This, of course, comes from Union County, but it also refers to any gathering place, or union, such as student unions on college campuses.
Station - Think railroad station. The railroad, particularly the Big Four Railroad, was once vitally important to Union County and was used to transport both passengers and freight. In the past, a community's train station was the first place people encountered when they visited an area. It was a local gathering place where information was often exchanged. It's easy to understand how train stations served as centers for culture, economic status, relationship-building and business dealings. Often referred to as unions, the train stations were places where people waited long hours to reunite with loved ones.
