The Haunting Train Station

The Decaying Central Depot

Left vacant in 1988, the Michigan Central Depot in Detroit has suffered years of abuse due to inclement weather, trespassers, and who knows what else. Somehow, though, it is nearly impossible to stave off the chills that creep up your spine as you stand before this magnificent and haunting structure.

Last March, Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick publicly announced plans to renovate the old station with the goal of making it the new headquarters of the Detroit Police Department. To date, no concrete development plans have been released.
