Opening of the Senate Chamber

The Wyoming Senate held a brief opening ceremony for the Senate Chamber on July 10.

The original 1917 paint schemes in the Legislative Chambers have been recreated. The current House and Senate Chambers were built in 1917. For that expansion, the east and west facades from 1890 were taken down, moved, and reassembled. Each Chamber includes four murals painted by artist Allen Tupper True. Completed the same year as the current Chambers, the murals depict subjects that are woven throughout Wyoming’s history and culture.
