Records date largely from the 1850s to present, and include such national treasures as Thomas U. Walter’s original plans for the existing Capitol Dome and the Frederick Law Olmsted designs for the Capitol Grounds. The repository holds more than 150,000 architectural drawings and more than 5,000 linear feet of textual records.
