About the Capitol Restoration Fund
It takes constant and conscientious effort to keep the 100 year old building in pristine condition and accessible to all. Current needs range everywhere from replacing carpet repairing sidewalks, to providing better and more energy efficient lighting, while maintaining the historical significance of the materials and fixtures at the Capitol. Other projects are geared toward upgrades to A/V equipment to improve functionality and to enhance the public tour experience for the thousands of visitors who pass through the building each year.
