Join us Saturday, October 5th from 11am-1pm for a book signing with Starley Talbott and Linda Graves Fabian, authors of A History of the Wyoming Capitol.



Prior to Wyoming becoming the forty-fourth state in the Union on July 10, 1890, the territorial legislature passed a bill authorizing the construction of a capitol at a maximum cost of $150,000. Governor Warren signed the bill on March 4, 1886, and appointed the Capitol Building Commission, which purchased a site on Hill Street, now Capitol Avenue, at a cost of $13,100. Many changes have occurred since the 1887 laying of the cornerstone. Recent renovations upgraded the capitol's Classical style and striking gold-leaf dome. The most important room, where women's right to vote began, has been restored to its original grandeur. Authors Starley Talbott and Linda Graves Fabian celebrate these and other historic firsts in this history of the state capitol building.
