Union Station

-A A +A
1924, Kenneth Murchison. W. 2nd St. below Hill-to-Hill Bridge
  • (William E. Fischer, Jr.)

As well as this cruciform brick station, Murchison also designed the more elaborate Hoboken Terminal and the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Station in Scranton ( LK11). Bethlehem's station is reserved and straightforward, its twin giant Doric columns on the east and west facades the only conspicuous detailing. The station is now a satellite medical facility.
