Fort Wayne, IN
|This Greyhound station was designed by Arrasmith and built in 1938. It was demolished in the 1980s. For more, see this website.|
|This Greyhound station was designed by Arrasmith and built from 1938-1939. The initial plans called for an exterior faced with Indiana limestone. Postcards, like that above, show the building with the incorrect color scheme. The central cylinder design suited this corner location and was repeated in later Greyhound stations. This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2007, Greyhound moved to a new facility and this building has been vacant since then. The windows were boarded up in 2009 and the porcelain enamel panels were painted a lighter blue. In 2014, restoration work began with the panels being temporarily removed and the building being stripped down to its skeleton. It may house a restaurant in the future. In 2015, the exterior restoration was finished and the neon sign was relit. In 2016, a Bru Burger Bar will be opening in the building. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]|
