Feel the History

The Evansville Greyhound Station
History in Jeopardy

The Evansville Greyhound Bus Station, a unique-to-Evansville Art Deco architectural example, opened in 1939 & was a hub of activity that peaked at 106 buses that arrived and departed daily. Construction on the bus station began in 1938 and cost $150,000 to complete.

Increasing air & car transportation has seen to the decline of the bus station to just four bus arrivals and departures a day. Renovations have transformed the station's interior to be almost unrecognizable from its original design, and the preservation & future of the building is unknown.
