Union Station is Washington DC's train station and premier shopping mall, which also serves as a venue for world-class exhibitions and international cultural events. The historic building was built in 1907 and is considered to be one of the finest examples of the Beaux-Arts style of architecture with its 96-foot barrel-vaulted ceilings, stone inscriptions and expensive materials such as white granite, marble and gold leaf. It is a beautiful building and its construction was a major milestone in the development of the core area of the nation's capital. Source: dc.about.com
