Union Station was built between 1912 and 1914.  A central transportation hub for the region and the state, the station originally served the New York Central (NYC) Railroad; Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad; and the New York, Ontario & Western Railroad. The building was designed by New York City architects Allen H. Stem and Alfred Fellheimer who were known for their work on New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. Union Station was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
