Union Terminal Tile
When Cincinnati Union Terminal opened on March 31, 1933, it marked a historic feat of both function and architecture. The station, designed to handle up to 216 trains per day, centralized the city’s several stations to one. This art deco masterpiece, with its semi-dome rotunda, the largest in the Western hemisphere at 180 feet wide by 106 feet high, is what made Union Terminal world renowned.
A wonderful feature of the Union Terminal is the tearoom, with tiled floors and walls designed by William Hentschel and created by Rookwood Pottery. This room was used as a USO headquarters during WWII and today serves as an ice cream parlor.
Celebrate this architectural masterpiece with your very own tile!
