The former Seoul Station started operating in a 33m2 (10 pyeong) wooden building in July of 1900 with the opening of the Kyeong-in railway line. It was originally located near Yeomcheon Bridge and was called Namdaemun Station. In September 1925, the South Manchurian Railway Company built a new renaissance style structure and changed its name to Gyeongseong Station. Not only was the newly built architecture grand in its scale but was the talk of the town due to its unique façade and domed roof. Later, Gyeonseong Station was renamed Seoul Station, and Seoul Station was restored after having been partly destroyed during the Korean War. In January 2004, with the opening of ktx and the newly constructed Seoul Station, the former Seoul Station was shut down, and with its restoration completed in 2011, re-opened as a multidisciplinary cultural complex.
