Inscription. The Union Depot, constructed on this site between 1857-1859, as a large train-shed with tracks, offices and waiting-rooms beneath, originated in an agreement of Sept. 12, 1857, between the Western & Atlantic and the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroads. These were later joined by the Memphis & Charleston and the East Tennessee & Georgia. The depot was modified in 1869 and in 1881 to include a brick building in front with offices and waiting-rooms.
