Memphis Central Station
Memphis once had two grand railway stations, back when trains crisscrossed the country. But the Union Station was torn down in 1967 and the Central Station, built in 1914, languished for years afterward. Now renovated, the station is a stop for Amtrak's "City of New Orleans" train on its way up and down the Mississippi, and also a site for shops, restaurants, apartments and offices.
