- Wabash Railroad Station and Freight House
- The Wabash Railroad Station and Freight House in Columbia, Missouri is a historic train station and headquarters of Columbia Transit. The building was constructed in 1909 as the terminus of the Columbia spur of the Wabash Railroad. The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. In 2007, the building underwent renovation and restoration and was expanded to accommodate offices for Columbia's public transportation. The project, costing over $2.5 million, was intended to make the station a multi-model transportation center. It was certified at the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Level, meaning it meets national standards for energy efficiency and sustainable construction. The station is also the busiest bus stop in Columbia and serves as a pickup point for Megabus. (read more...)
