Great Overland Station

The Great Overland Station, opened as a Union Pacific Depot in 1927, was abandoned in 1989 and damaged by fire in 1992. The interior restoration involved selective demolition, structural and plaster repair, and custom design elements including ornamental plaster and custom light fixtures.  

Following the restoration, the Great Overland Station was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
