Union Station on Salt Lake Trolley Tour

Salt Lake City Union Pacific Depot, originally called Union Station, was built in 1909 for $450,000. This grand depot reminds us of the prosperous era of railroad travel in America. Made of beautiful sandstone with a copper roof, the architectural style is French Second Empire, with a Grand Hall that includes stained glass windows and a terazzo floor. Murals inside the Grand Hall entrance depict the Golden Spike Ceremony that marked the completion of America’s first transcontinental railroad in 1869, as well as the 1847 arrival of Mormon pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley. Jump aboard the historic Salt Lake Trolley Tour to see this building and many others. Also consider our Salt Lake City Deluxe Tour and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Deluxe City Tour. Reserve your seats on the sightseeing tours online at or call (801) 531-1001.
