Union Station was built in 1910 as the terminus for the Northern Pacific Railroad.
The stunning glasswork on the Monarch Window was created by Dale Chihuly, a native of Tacoma. Through the window, one can see the two Crystal Towers on the Bridge of Glass, the distinctive cone of the Museum of Glass and

These projects have become the centerpiece of an arts district that has revitalized the urban core of Tacoma.
