Capitol inside

Citizens look at the new statues, which are allegorical sculptures that represent hope, courage, justice and truth, while touring the Capitol for the first time during the grand re-opening on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, in downtown Cheyenne. Renovation and restoration of the 130-year-old Capitol, which is one of only 20 state capitols designated as a National Historic Landmark, took four years and more than $300 million. It was re-opened with fanfare to the public on Statehood Day.

CHEYENNE — Before Wednesday’s grand reopening of the newly renovated state Capitol, one would be forgiven if they didn’t believe the four-year, multi-million-dollar project would result in something spectacular.
