On April 26, 1990, the State Preservation
Board members participated in the
official ground breaking ceremony of the
project for the excavation work that was
begun on the underground extension in
May of 1990.
The restoration of the Italian Renaissance
Revival style Capitol will focus on
the period 1888, when the construction of
the building was completed, to 1915 before
major remodeling of the building began.
Preservation will involve stabilization of
the building using techniques and materials
appropriate to the building's existing
Capitol restoration contract award for
both interior and exterior, including roof,
windows and stone cleaning, will be con
current with extension contracts. Interior
restoration will begin as soon as sufficient
underground extension work has been
completed to allow move-in, permitting
vacated areas to be restored. The restoration
portion will house the offices of the
Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker of the
House, Secretary of State, Legislative
Council, some House and Senate
