Small note in the Star this week on Union Station
I saw this a couple days ago, then searched for more information on it online but could find no further information from the travel writers. Anyway, here goes:
Union Station lauded by travel writers
Union Station is one of the best examples in the world of conservation and preservation, according to the Society of American Travel Writers.
The restored Kansas City train station received one of six Phoenix Awards at the trade group’s annual meeting.
“The restoration itself was remarkable,” a selection committee member wrote, “and I love how the station has become a huge focal point of the community and also spurred other development around it.”
Other tourism sites lauded were a wildlife foundation in Namibia, the Charleston, S.C. city market, a wildlife society at Sanibel Island, Fla., a wildlife park in Fiji and a package of preservation projects in west Texas.
