Eddie Bernice Johnson
Dallas Union Station
Centennial Celebration 10/17/16
For 100 years people have been arriving and departing from Dallas Union Station. Bringing all the railroads together in one central station helped to hasten the growth of Dallas, a town with no major river for marine traffic.
Texas Rail Advocates was proud to be part of the Celebration Committee for the newly renamed Eddie Bernice Johnson Union Station. Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, known for her wide-ranging advocacy of transportation issues, was honored at the 100 year anniversary of Union Station on Monday, October 17, 2016.
