Inscription.  This Union Station was built in 1904-05 as a center for El Paso's international railroad traffic. Constructed under the direction of Buchanan and Powers, general contractors, it was designed by the noted Chicago architectural firm of Daniel H. Burnham, who also designed the elaborate Union Station in Washington, D.C. The El Paso Union Passenger Station now serves as a reminder of the railroad's role in the early development of the city.
