The 130-year-old Capitol desperately needed repair to address dangerous life safety issues and to ensure that the building would be saved for future generations. When closed to the public in December 2015, the Capitol had faulty wiring, serious egress issues, no fire suppression system, and exterior stone was falling off the building.
The project is entering the home stretch. Herschler East opened to the public in May 2018, and the new central utility plant was operational at that time as well. The construction on Herschler West and the Capitol Extension is underway. Work on the Capitol interior now includes painting, carpeting, and woodwork restoration. The project is slated to open to the public on July 10, 2019. This is actually the anniversary of when Wyoming joined the Union. We are SOLD on our community and our State, so what better day to celebrate! We hope to see you there!
