The Union Station is a historic train station in Montgomery, Alabama. It is also known as the Montgomery Union Station and Trainshed. It was built in 1898 by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad and served the company, as well as the Atlantic Coast Line, Seaboard Air Line, Western Railway of Alabama, Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad, and the Central of Georgia.

When the number of passengers went down during the 1950s and 60s, the train service also declined. However, in 1971, Amtrak came into existence and allowed the continued use of the Union Station. It didn?t work out too well, though, because the station was closed in 1979. After being abandoned for some time, it was renovated and opened for commercial uses. It is also now the home of the Montgomery Area Visitor Center.

The Union Station is a National Historic Landmark and a part of the National Register of Historic Places.
