Burlington Train Station, Omaha

Burlington Train Station, Omaha

The Burlington Train Station was built in 1898 by architect Thomas Rogers Kimball. The building was designed in the Italianate style. Burlington Station served Omaha longer than any other station in the city. Between 1929 and 1930 the station was remodeled in order to compete with the Union Station that was to be completed in 1931. The remodeling was done in Neo-Classical Revival style. Many decor elements were removed. In 1954 the station was again remodeled; a parking plaza and a circular drive were added near the station. In 1974 the station was closed and the same year it was included in the National Register of Historic Places. In 1984 the interior was destroyed by an architectural salvager who removed everything from the interior decor. In 2004 two investors bought the building in order to convert it to residential space, but in 2008 the project stopped and the building was abandoned.
