Wyoming Capitol Building Officially Reopens
After four years of work and millions of dollars worth of renovations, Wyoming's Capitol Building is officially open for business again.
The project gave the building that houses Wyoming's Governor, statewide elected officials, and legislators a complete makeover. The price tag for the entire Capitol Square Project, which included work on the capitol building and it's surroundings as well as the nearby Herschler Building topped $300 million.
The renovations included bringing the building up to code, expanded meeting rooms for legislative and other state hearings, and a variety of other work.
Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, former Governor Matt Mead and numerous other state elected officials and legislators past and present officially held a ribbon cutting ceremony a little before 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10, which is also the 129th anniversary of Wyoming statehood.
