The Main Street Station, one of the few French Renaissance buildings in Richmond, exemplifies a standard train station plan of the late-nineteenth century. Designed by Wilson, Harris and Richards of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who also designed the Pennsylvania-Reading Station, the station was a very busy travel center of the city during the heyday of passenger service.
