Statehouse Renovation Nearly Complete

KSAL StaffJanuary 1, 2014

After 13 years of renovations, the Kansas Statehouse is ready to welcome new generations of visitors to the seat of state government.

The project’s final phase included an auditorium, a classroom, thousands of square feet of exhibition space and a visitors’ center, complete with an oversized map of Kansas.

A ribbon cutting will take place Thursday to open the new space.

A formal ceremony to mark completion of the $330 million renovation project is scheduled for Jan. 29. The Statehouse was built over 37 years beginning in 1866.

Visitors will enter the building from the north at the ground level and proceed through the visitor center and into limestone corridors that are the foundation.
