In July, AHPP will tour Union Station, 1400 W. Markham St., in Little Rock! Don't miss this exciting and educational Sandwiching in History tour on Friday, July 7, at noon!

Little Rock’s Union Station was constructed in 1921 to replace an earlier depot on the site that burned in 1920. The current structure was designed by architect E. M. Tucker of St. Louis and exhibits elements of the Renaissance Revival style. A railroad station has been located on or near this site since the 1870s. Union Station was a bustling place in its heyday, serving as the point of departure for soldiers leaving Camp Robinson during World War II as well as a whistle stop during Harry S. Truman’s presidential campaign. The building is currently used as office and event space as well as the local Amtrak station.
