Walking Tour

Visitors to historic downtown Union City are invited to follow the railroad heritage trail to see some of the areas most historically and architecturally significant structures. This trail also highlights the role that train travel played on the development of downtown Union City.

The walking tour starts at the historic Railroad Depot which was built in 1922. This building has been completely renovated and is now the offices of the Obion County Chamber of Commerce, Joint Economic Developement, and the Industrial Development Corporation. Directly across the street is Kiwanis Park once known as Railroad Park. While touring the park, visitors should take notice of the Confederate Memorial and the Centennial Fountain. The route will then take you past the 1930 Greyhound bus station and to the Capitol Theatre. The theatre which first opened in 1927 is now home to the Masquerade Theatre of Union City. The United States Post Office, the Obion County Courthouse, and the Davy Crockett Hotel finish up the tour..
