Happened to catch this view in March from a parking garage just across the street and south of the Capitol. Designed by Edwin F. May, who unfortunately died in 1880, and work was taken over by Adolph Scherrer, May’s chief draftsman. The new State House was completed in 1888 for approximately two million dollars. An 11 million dollar restoration in 1988 returned much of th 1888 atmosphere to the interior of the building, which had been subjected to numerous renovations over the years. The interior is one of the most breath-taking in the city. Have you been?
