Preserve History: Save Goldsboro Union Station

Tax deductible
Ensure it has a future. Let it serve Goldsboro again. Be part of history!

Saving Union Station formed in late 2023 to advocate for stabilizing the iconic Goldsboro Union Station (GUS). Their goal is to raise $750,000 to match a combined and equal contribution by the City of Goldsboro and County of Wayne, to reach the necessary $1.5 million needed to address GUS’s most immediate stabilization needs.

Completed in 1909, Goldsboro’s Union Station was built to serve three railroad companies; one had boasting rights of owning the longest rail line in the world at 161.5 miles. It was designed to convey the importance of the railroad to Goldsboro, Wayne County, and eastern NC with its elaborate architectural details, much of which are still intact, and is considered to be one of North Carolina’s most ambitiously designed stations. This landmark structure is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and holds the honor of state significance.

The Goldsboro Union Station has a long and important history, but now finds itself needing help so that it can continue its service to our community and help restore the pride we once had when it was constructed back in 1909. If a stabilization band aid is not applied to it soon, we could lose it and all the opportunities it provides.

Please join us to save this gem and ensure it has a future for our community! Thanks in advance for your contribution.
