Durand Union Station
200 Railroad St., Durand
See Durand’s history come alive in this century-old Victorian depot. Built in 1903 and re-built after a fire in 1905, picturesque Union Station was at one time Michigan’s busiest train station. Sadly, the depot was closed in 1974 because of declining rail traffic. In 1979, however, the City of Durand purchased the building for $1.00, and the community rallied to restore it to its old beauty. It has since become one of the most-photographed train stations in America.
Union Station is more than a museum. It is still an active train station, and passengers still walk the corridors of the depot to board their train. The Amtrak Blue Water eastbound to Port Huron and westbound to Chicago make daily stops at the Durand Union Station. Thirty or more freight trains pass the station daily providing for excitement and photo opportunities for rail fans on a regular basis.
