For one hundred years the Capitol has been the hub of government and an enduring symbol for an ever-changing Minnesota. Through lively historical narratives, plentiful pictures, and creative activities, learn how the Capitol came to represent the North Star state and how Minnesota made itself at home in a gleaming marble structure on the hill.

MINNESOTA’S CAPITOL: A Centennial Story blends contemporary tales with historical events to help students understand the role the Capitol plays in our lives and how it has changed as our state has grown. . . . a must-have for every school in Minnesota.”
–Dr. Patricia Harvey, Superintendent of Schools, St. Paul (1999-2005)

“In 1895 a commission was appointed and some money appropriated to build a [new] capitol. Instead of carrying it down to the minimum, instead of doing what they thought they could afford, they had a vision of what the state of Minnesota was going to be, and that it should have a capitol worthy of the state that was to be. They built this magnificent Capitol building, complete with a wonderful dome and gold horses and Italian marble all over the place. What a vision! What a challenge! What an inspiration!”
–Elmer L. Andersen, Governor of Minnesota (1961-1963)
