Salt Lake City Union Pacific Depot

The Salt Lake City Union Pacific Depot is a building on the western edge of downtown Salt Lake City, United States. Built in 1908–09, it dates back to the more prosperous era in the history of American railroad travel; as Salt Lake Union Pacific Railroad Station, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Called the Union Station, it was jointly constructed by the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad and the Oregon Short Line, both wholly owned by the Union Pacific, at an estimated cost of $450,000; the platforms behind the station ran north-to-south, parallel to the first main line built in the Salt Lake Valley, which predated the station building. South of 1300 South this is the route used by the UTA TRAX Blue Line and Salt Lake City Southern, while north of North Temple it is used by the FrontRunner line and Union Pacific. Trains from the west used a line south of 900 South in Glendale to approach the north-to-south platforms; the Salt Lake and Ogden Interurban line stopped nearby.

When Amtrak was formed in 1971, it took over the remaining passenger services at the station, but after Rio Grande joined Amtrak all trains were moved to its station three blocks south. From 1977 to 1986 the depot served as Salt Lake City's Amtrak station, but was replaced by the Denver and Rio Grande Western Depot, it was served by the California Zephyr, Desert Wind, Pioneer trains, with the latter two having been discontinued in 1997. The California Zephyr runs once daily between Chicago and Emeryville, California; the former Desert Wind ran daily from Chicago to Los Angeles) and the former Pioneer ran daily Chicago to Seattle. In 1999 Amtrak moved to the Salt Lake City Intermodal Hub. According to The Railway Gazette the structure's plans came from the office of J. H. Wallace, Assistant Chief Engineer of the Southern Pacific, under the direction of D. J. Patterson, Architect for that company, it served the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake and the Oregon Short Line when it was completed in 1909 and became wholly owned by Union Pacific in the 1920s.

Both railroads' initials were prominently displayed on the front of the building, but the "Union Pacific" shield or related logo has graced the depot for most of its history. The sandstone building is in French Second Empire style, includes a terazzo floor and stained glass windows. One ceiling mural “Driving The Golden Spike” by San Francisco artist John McQuarrie in 1909, depicts the driving of the Golden Spike north of Salt Lake City at "Promontory Summit" signifying the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in 1869. Another mural, “Emigrants Entering Salt Lake Valley,” by San Francisco artists John McQuarrie & August C. Wocker in 1909, shows the 1847 arrival of Mormon pioneers to Salt Lake City. Several side rooms were used for separate male and female waiting areas; the depot once housed an emergency hospital, lunch room, baggage rooms, offices for both of the original railroads. Most of these features are gone now, but the building was extensively renovated in the 1970s to repair damage.

Additionally, the original slate roof was replaced by copper plates due to leaking problems. The main lobby, no longer used by Amtrak, serves as an entrance to The Gateway development. Most of the building is not used for its original purpose, but Union Pacific uses some of the space for offices and training areas. In January 2006, three floors opened as a restaurant and music venue, fittingly called The Depot; the Depot brings a wide variety of musical talent to Salt Lake City.

Central Christian Church (Austin, Texas)

Central Christian Church is a major church in downtown Austin, Texas affiliated with the Christian Church. Organized in 1847, it is one of the oldest congregations in the city; the church has been known as Christian Church of Austin. The current church building, featuring Romanesque Revival architecture, was completed in 1929; the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. In 1847, eight years after the City of Austin was platted, ten members of the Disciples of Christ Brotherhood met to organize this congregation. Although early records of the church are scarce, it is known that regular worship services were being held in a local school building by 1852; the Christian Church of Austin, as the congregation was known, acquired its first property at Eighth and Colorado Streets and worshiped at that site until moving to this location in 1929. An early dispute over theological and procedural matters split the congregation in 1888; until 1896, when the Rev. S. D. Dutcher was appointed pastor, leaders of the church were selected from among the laity.

The fellowship adopted its current name during the early years of the twentieth century, after other Disciples of Christ congregations had been organized in Austin. Although much growth has occurred in the outlying sections of the city, Central Christian Church has remained a vital force in the downtown area, its ministry has included the establishment of several other congregations. As one of the oldest churches in Austin, Central Christian has provided the city with significant service and leadership. Central Christian Church
