BRISTOL, Va. — How can you not love the Bristol Train Station?

From its stately perch, what’s known as the “Union Station” not only makes a commanding presence at the heart of Bristol. It also affords a grand view from its porches and sweeping grassy banks.

Listed on both state and national historic landmark registers, the station was built in 1902 by John P. Pettyjohn & Company of Lynchburg, Virginia, at a cost a little more than $79,000. It’s the fourth station to be built in Bristol since trains first arrived in town in 1856.
