It will have all the conveniences, such as a complete drug store with special facilities for the care of invalids and change room where travelers can at nominal cost obtain shower baths and make a change of clothing. Accommodations for passengers will not be outdone by any railroad station in the World"; owned by Michigan Central Railroad, the station was designed by Warren And Wetmore and Reed And Stem; the station opened prematurely after a fire destroyed Detroit's downtown station in December 1913, and it remained in use until Amtrak service stopped in January 1988; as of 2017, the building still stands but future use is undecided; addressed to Mrs. Charles E. Washburn.
