Historic paint in the House Chambers

Painters have finished restoring the historic paint on the upper levels of the House Chamber.

Painters worked on a plywood floor placed on top of three-story scaffolding in order to access the ceiling.


The designs are based on 1917 decorative paint discovered on walls and ceilings in the historic chambers.


Based on the invasive infrastructure work that is taking place to address life safety, building system, and code-related issues, the Capitol needed to be repainted. The historic paint schemes from 1917 are being applied in the House and Senate Chambers.
