Greyhound Station
Birmingham, AL
The Birmingham station was designed by Arrasmith and opened in 1951. It was built of stone and brick. The interior featured terrazzo floors. There were two lobbies, one for whites and one for "coloreds", each with their own restaurant. While the building's design was more boxy than earlier stations from the 1940s, the streamline pylon sign and canopy were retained. This station was the site of civil rights actions. [map]

Greyhound Station
Dothan, AL
This former Dothan Greyhound station has been adapted for use as the G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum which opened in 2005. This building appears to be from the 1940s. It was there by at least 1948. [map]

Greyhound Station
Montgomery, AL
This former Montgomery Greyhound station was built in 1951. In 1961, the station was the site of a mob attack on Freedom Riders during the Civil Rights Movement. The station closed in 1995 and fell into disrepair. It has since been restored. There are plans to open the space in 2011 as a museum devoted to the history of the Freedom Rides.
