Union Station Balcony
The second floor balcony of the Union Station Hotel overlooks the lobby. Nashville's Union Station is a former railroad terminal opened in 1900 to serve the passenger operations of the eight railroads then providing passenger service to Nashville, Tennessee. The station was also served by streetcars prior to their discontinuance in Nashville in 1941. The station is an example of late-Victorian Romanesque Revival architecture and is highly castellated. The tower originally contained an early mechanical digital clock; when replacement French silk drive belts proved unavailable during World War I, it was replaced by a traditional analog clock.
