Join us in celebrating the re-opening of the Minnesota State Capitol building today, January 3, 2017! After 3 years of restoration, renovation and technical updates the building is finally open to the public. Please visit the capitol website for more information on tours.

In honor of this occasion, the Item of the Day presents the first page of a recently acquired state capitol construction photo album. It contains over 275 photographs taken during the construction of the capitol building between 1896 and 1905. Please visit the finding aid for the collection here, and the entire album can be seen (as a PDF) here.
