Shutterbug Sunday: Greyhound Bus Terminal

The historic Greyhound Bus Terminal is located in Evansville, Indiana at the corners of Sycamore and West Third Streets. This iconic, bright blue, Art Moderne building is a definitive icon of the downtown streets of Evansville. According to its National Register nomination, the building was constructed in 1939 by the architect William Arrasmith, who also designed several other art moderne Greyhound Bus Terminals. I have read and heard about this beauty recently as Indiana Landmarks is the newest owner, with the intent to raise funds to restore and reuse this architectural gem.

When I visited Evansville last week, I swung by and snagged several photos of the blue enameled Greyhound Bus Terminal.

I look forward to seeing this building restored in the coming years!
