Our Minnesota State Capitol

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

From gleaming marble and vibrant art to new public spaces, the Minnesota State Capitol’s $310 million renovation–the largest preservation effort since it opened in 1905–is complete. The Capitol now offers more public space, and the building’s historic furniture, artwork, and interior decorations have been restored to their 1905 appearance. Learn about the history and rehabilitation of this iconic building from Denis P. Gardner, Minnesota’s National Register Historian at the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office. Gardner is the author of the recently-released book Our Minnesota State Capitol: From Groundbreaking through Restoration. Desserts will be served afterwards.
