Description History & Railroading - The Niles Michigan station was built for the Michigan Central Railroad in 1892, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and on the Michigan State Register in 1992. The station was planned by architects Frederich Spier and William C. Rohns. Still in use as a passenger depot, the station has changed little from its original structure.Amtrak has owned the station and the former Michigan Central route since 1976. The station itself was renovated in 1988 and last received an exterior rehabilitation around 2003The Niles station has been used for location shots in three movies: Continental Divide, Midnight Run and Only the Lonely. In the last movie, in 1990, the depot was decorated with Christmas lights for a scene. With the filming done, the movie company offered to donate the lights to Amtrak, which owns the building. Amtrak declined the offer, so the lights were given to the Niles Garden Club. Since that year, the station has been decorated and lit on the first of December through Christmas, with permanent wiring installed just for that purpose. The garden club hosts a ceremony in the depot each year for the lighting of the depot.Retrieved from http://www.greatamericanstations.com/Stations/NLSon 2/11/2013Copyright 2013, Pat Cook, All Rights Reserved.
Pat Cook, Ann Arbor Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement Award winning photographer, Pat Cook, was mesmerized as a teen when he was given a used Argus (brick) film camera. His love for the lens blossomed like a flowering tree. It has grown daily for over forty years as he has refined his skills and equipment to become a leader in the world of high-end digital photography. Intensity, passion, truth and complex simplicity characterize his work. His Native American ancestry (Cherokee) guides him to a unique perspective, especially in his nature photographs. As Ansel Adams said “A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words."
He is also available for commission in the Southeast area of Michigan.
