Sam Combs served as Director of Historic Preservation as well as being in charge of the Historic Structures Report. The Union Station was designed by Reed and Stem, Architects, in 1909. This incredibly large and complicated project was divided into three initial restoration phases: 1. Tier I-Copper Dome Roof Restoration, 2. Tier II-Exterior Masonry Restoration, and 3. Tier III-Plaster Dome Restoration. The plans for the Union Station involved the incorporation of the state historical museum as well as court system buildings on the north and south sides of the station.
