Deconstruction work uncovers history at the Capitol

Crews are working on the next phase of investigative work in the Wyoming State Capitol to uncover the building's structure for further analysis. In the process, the workers have been uncovering hidden arches and historic paint. Over the course of its 125 year plus history, the Capitol has undergone numerous additions and renovations. Although there are record documents of the existing conditions, not all conditions and exact measurements are known. This work started on April 20, 2015 and will continue for six weeks. The 1888 photo,courtesy of Wyoming State Archives,  shows some of the arches in the center building of the Capitol as work started on the completion of the two wings.
