Legislative Building

The monumental Legislative Building, completed in 1928 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was leaking. SHKS completed the third phase of its repairs: restoring four historic skylights, and cleaning and repointing the masonry. Earlier phases focused on the dome of the Legislative Building.
