Nebraska State Capitol Courtyard Fountain Dedication
September 22, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
When construction of the Nebraska State Capitol concluded in 1932, a lack of resources stemming from the Great Depression put completion of the building’s four courtyards on hold. Nearly 86 years later in 2017, Nebraskans celebrated the long-awaited installation of four courtyard fountains – just in time for the state’s sesquicentennial. The $3.1 million investment brought the Capitol one step closer to completion. The only piece that remains is restoration of the courtyard landscape, which the Nebraska Association of Former State Legislators is tackling next.
