Celebrating 120 Years of Nashville Style

Join Union Station Nashville as we celebrate 120 years of new and nostalgic Nashville with live music, signature events, and special celebrations throughout the year.

Completed in 1900, Union Station Nashville is a converted 19th century Neo-Romanesque railroad station. Boasting original elements, including a 65-foot barrel-vaulted ceiling, crystal chandeliers, Italian marble floors, bas-relief sculptures, and three limestone fireplaces, Union Station is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Music City.

Union Station Nashville reached its peak during WWII when it served as a USO canteen. In fact, the iconic limestone fireplace inside the former railroad terminal was once the site of hasty elopements and secret ceremonies to soldiers shipping off to serve in Europe and the Pacific. 

Despite closing its doors to commuters in the 1970s, Union Station Nashville retains the grandeur of a pre-war city train station. Today, our downtown Nashville hotel is a member of the Historic Hotels of America and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its local relevance to the city of Nashville.

During your Music City getaway, celebrate in Nashville style with a year of events. Watch for updates on our event calendar and blog at Union Station Nashville.
