The Wellston Station in St. Louis was constructed by the United Railway company in 1901. Located on a transfer point between major streetcar lines, the station was the largest waiting station in the city and the only one still standing. The station served the Wellston Loop, which by 1940 had become one of the busiest streetcar transfer points in the country. The station was also the termination point for the city's last streetcar line. The station is nominated for its architectural significance as well as its role in the transformation of St. Louis's mass transit system
