From its beginning in 1903, the “Union Depot” on Michigan Avenue was a haven of hospitality for train
passengers and Lansing locals whose entertainment was watching the iron horse pull in each day. It’s rumored this
station was also used as a backdrop in the production and shooting of the famous novel turned movie “Anatomy of a
Murder.” The elaborate combination of cut stone arches and towers was designed be Detroit architects Spiers and
Rohns who gave several Michigan railroad stations a similar dash of Romanesque design.
