Union Station is lit nightly from 9 p.m. to midnight.
A pair of Lockport landmarks are being bathed in light in celebration of the city's 150th birthday.

The steeple on St. Mary's is being illuminated through July 5, as is Union Station.

Father Walter Szczesny, pastor of All Saints Parish said the steeple is "symbolic of the rich heritage of the many churches in Lockport."

It was to be lit from July 3-5, but the lights were turned on early.

Union Station's lighting was the idea of Ellen Martin, who said it's being done "to celebrate it as a ruin instead of bemoaning the fact that it burned down 40-plus years ago."

She was joined last week by about a dozen volunteers to clear the former train station of years worth of brush to ready it for the lighting.
