Old Michigan Central Station.  100 Washington Street, Michigan City Indiana.

Michigan City Railroad Station  Note the Sign for Acadia Restaurant

    I happened upon this building by chance when I was visiting the Old Michigan City Lighthouse.  It is a one story brick New York Central Craftsmen Style Building at 100  Washington Street.   It was built for the Michigan Central Rairoad in 1905. I do not know when it ceased being used as a train station.  

     Apparently over the years, it was used by multiple restaurants.  Some of these were Swingbellys, 100 Washington and Arcadia.  Currently, it appears vacant. There appears to be a homeless encampment adjacent to the building.

Same as above

     There is a concrete platform and three sided shelter adjacent to the railroad tracks in this area.  For forty years, these were used by Amtrak.  This service was discontinued in 2022.
