Union Station Cupola

Union Station opened in 1903 at 525 8th Street and served the following railroads: Atlantic Coast Line, Central of Georgia, Charleston & Western Carolina, Georgia Railroad, Georgia & Florida and Southern Railway. The station was closed in 1968 and demolished in 1972. This cupola was rescued before demolition and currently sits in the front yard of the Old Richmond Academy on Telfair Street.


  1. It's great that they at least saved the cupola and it is lovely! I'll bet that the station was beautiful too.

  2. My first thought was that it looked like it belonged on top of a building rather than on the ground. Then I read your comment :)

  3. I'm glad they at least saved the cupola. It has a great patina.
