    Being listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Salt Lake City Union Pacific Depot dates to the more prosperous era in the history of American railroad travel. Originally called the Union Station, it was jointly constructed by the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroads and the Oregon Short Line. The platforms behind the station ran north-to-south, parallel to the first main line built in the Salt Lake Valley. When Amtrak was formed in 1971, it took over the passenger services at the station, but all trains were moved to the Rio Grande station after it joined Amtrak. In January 2006, The Depot was opened as a shopping center that housed shops, restaurants and music venues.

    Name Meaning

    English: from Middle English bissop, biscop, Old English bisc(e)op ‘bishop’, which comes via Latin from Greek episkopos ‘overseer’. The Greek word was adopted early in the Christian era as a title for an overseer of a local community of Christians, and has yielded cognates in every European language: French évêque, Italian vescovo, Spanish obispo, Russian yepiskop, German Bischof, etc. The word came to be applied as a surname for a variety of reasons, among them a supposed resemblance in bearing or appearance to a bishop, and selection as the ‘boy bishop’ on Saint Nicholas's Feast Day. In some instances the surname is from the rare Middle English (Old English) personal name Biscop ‘bishop’. As an Irish surname it is adopted for Mac Giolla Easpaig, meaning ‘servant of the bishop’ (see Gillespie ). In North America, this surname has absorbed, by assimilation and translation, at least some of continental European cognates, e.g. German Bischoff , Polish, Rusyn, Czech, and Slovak Biskup , Slovenian Škof (see Skoff ).
