New Capitol Unveiled on WY Birthday
The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Capitol Square Project in Cheyenne will be streamed live at 1 p.m., capping off the massive renovation project on Wyoming’s birthday. Today, the Cowboy Stater is officially 129 years old.
Originally built to resemble the nation’s capital, the cornerstone was laid in May 1887.
This multi-year project was designed to address infrastructure problems, overcrowding, exterior problems, as well as a renovation project in 1980 that significantly altered the Capitol’s historic character.
