Philly 30th Street Interior Added to Historic Register

The Philadelphia Historical Commission has placed the interior of Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station to its local historic register.

The station is just the fourth interior space to be named to the register in the city and the designation will protect it from modification.

The nomination of the station was recommended by a consultant to the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia in consultation with Amtrak.

The nomination cited the interior’s historical and architectural significance, and its status as one of Philadelphia’s “most iconic and trafficked public spaces.”

The station was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad between 1929 and 1933.

It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Amtrak is planning to update the station as well as develop the area around it.
