Terminal Station: Birmingham's Great Temple of Travel

This exhibit will explore the history of Birmingham’s Terminal Station, built in 1909 and demolished in 1969, using artifacts and images from the Birmingham History Center Collection at Vulcan Park and Museum, Leeds Depot, Birmingham Public Library,

From 1909-1969, Terminal Station stood as an icon of Birmingham’s boom years. “The Great Temple of Travel,” as it was popularly known, welcomed out of town visitors, residents, and immigrants to the Magic City with awe-inspiring grandeur.  By the 1960s, automobiles and airlines were the favored mode of transportation, and the station was obsolete.  It was demolished in 1969, just days after the last train to depart the station made its final farewell.
