Completed between 1912-1913, this building served as Pensacola's main passenger station and express building for the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. Designed with a combination of Prairie School, Spanish Mission and Italianate architectural styles, this building was used by the railroad for over 60 years. In 1984, the building was refurbished and incorporated into the Pensacola Grand Hotel, then the Crowne Plaza Pensacola Grand Hotel, when the hotel was constructed behind it. The building houses a lobby, shops, a restaurant, and meeting rooms.
