Designed by M. A. Lang and built in 1910, Union Station in Gary, IN is located on Broadway between the lines of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway and Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. The Beaux Arts structure is almost completely hidden by the elevated train tracks until you are facing the building.
