More than a train station, for over 100 years Tampa Union Station has been a landmark for generations of Tampa travelers and residents.
Located at 601 North Nebraska Avenue in Downtown Tampa near Ybor City, Union Station was completed in 1912. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, today Tampa Union Station serves nearly 140,000 Amtrak passengers each year as well as those who visit it to learn more about Tampa’s past. Originally built by the railroads which helped to create modern Florida, today Union Station is owned by the City of Tampa.
Friends of Tampa Union Station, a not-for-profit group of volunteers, is working to ensure that this historic landmark continues to be preserved for current and future generations to use and enjoy.
We raise funds for the Tampa Union Station endowment fund at the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay which supports ongoing restoration projects and upkeep at this historic landmark. Our group also helps organize National Train Day festivities at Tampa Union Station every May.
