Main Street Station, designated as a National Historic Landmark, is a rehabilitated and repurposed former train shed located in downtown Richmond, VA.  Originally built in 1901, and attached to north end of the Renaissance Revival-style headhouse, the shed once served as a dead-end platform for passenger trains. The building was stripped down to its riveted steel structure and reskinned to create the beautiful and historically respectful building you see today, which serves as an event space.
