Here it is under construction in 1891. In 1890 the Northern Pacific and the St. Paul and Duluth railway officials jointly authorized construction of the Union Depot. It served seven railroads. It was designed by the firm of Peabody and Stearns and cost $615,000. It opened March 1, 1892. The original train shed was razed in 1924.
