The city of Meridian was born of and experienced its greatest growth in conjunction with railroads. Even famous native son Jimmie Rodgers worked on the railroad before becoming a pioneering country-music star. The city has capitalized on its railroading heritage in the development of the Union Station Multi-Modal Transportation Center (MMTC). The site selected for the MMTC project, the Depot Historic District, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and occupies four city blocks. Union Station accommodates several modes of passenger transportation, including Amtrak trains, Greyhound buses, and other providers of transit services.
